About Us

We love champagne.

At Emperor we believe in the sanctity of savouring; the moment you unwrap your parcel, the pop of the cork, the clink of your tulip flutes and the thousands of tiny bubbles which have taken years of passion and precision to create.

It’s one of the most intricate and difficult wines to produce, created painstakingly in one of the most climatically challenging regions in the world. It ages longer than almost all other wines and is rarely understood. The category of champagne is broad and deserves to be explored.

We believe that the wines coming out of the Champagne region of France are the most interesting they have ever been and it’s a supremely exciting time for the champagne lover

Our expert team buy champagne ethically, we sell fairly, we store correctly and we support the industry of champagne from the dynamic small growers, to the medium-sized houses of absolute elegance and the iconic grande marques, selecting the very best champagnes to satisfy your passion of this incredible wine.

The expert team are champagne lovers and connoisseurs with over 55 years of wine experience and we want to share our obsession with you – from our extensive range of cuvees, incredible experiences to our champagne club and beyond.

At Emperor, champagne really does rule. Join the revolution.
