About the Roederer Champagne House

Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate is nestled in Mendocino County’s cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking.

Roederer Estate’s sparkling wines are produced using only Estate-grown grapes from the winery’s own vineyards. The multi-vintage Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim, followed by the Roederer Estate Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate’s tête de cuvée, L’Ermitage.  Since Champagne Louis Roederer’s founding in 1776, the House has been synonymous with the world’s greatest champagnes. Champagne Louis Roederer continues as one of the very rare Champagne houses to remain firmly in the hands of the family. For two centuries, seven successive generations have been responsible for building a reputation for quality and continuity.

About the Glastonbury Food Bank
