Customer Spotlight: The Alchemists
Based in California and 100% focused on champagne, The Alchemists was founded by Chris Nicola in 2020 and truly passionate about champagne after having spent almost three decades in the corporate worlds of retail fashion, financial services, advertising, entertainment, video games, and high tech industries, and more recently Apple. The Alchemists is part of Grand Cuvée LLC (established in 2017) a business dedicated to Champagne. The Alchemists represents small family-owned producers who have a long history in winemaking that show a real respect for the environment. The relationships with their producers and families are built on a foundation of transparency, integrity and trust, in everything they do together.
New additions to The Alchemists’ unique portfolio include Nathalie Falmet, Emmanuelle & Marc Augustin, Colette Bonnet, and now representing the legendary David Léclapart for the state of California. They join a thoughtfully curated selection of talented winemakers including Emeline De Sloovere-Pienne, Champagne Bonnaire, Paul Clouet, Dumangin J. Fils, Alexandre Penet and Penet-Chardonnet. Many of their producers are experimenting with new innovative sustainable ways of winemaking and farming, and integrating traditional strategies such as agroforestry, which has been practiced around the world for centuries.
The Alchemists is honored to represent this incredible group of winemakers and are proud to have recently signed on Ecocert certified organic and biodynamic producers such as Colette Bonnet, Emmanuelle & Marc Augustin, and one of the very early pioneers David Léclapart.
