Since 1862, our family has been crafting champagne in Chamery, with Grégoire Bonnet as one the first recoltant manipulants of the village.

After him, Jules Bonnet extended the domain by purchasing more parcels in Chamery and installing a 5500 kg wooden press powered by human strength, before the electricity reached the village, around 1902.

His son Raoul moved to another location in the village after the destruction of the family cellar by a Second World War bombing. He then initiated the construction of our present caves to store his small production of about 5000 bottles a year.

He was quickly join by his son André, who was in charge of ploughing the family vines with his two horses at the age of 14.

In the year 1956, André Bonnet met Monique Ponson, herself being from a winegrower’s family of Vrigny, another village of the Montagne de reims.

With their union, André and Monique started the domain Bonnet- Ponson, growing few plots of Meunier and Pinot noir in Chamery, Vrigny and Coulommes la Montagne.

After a life of hard work, the surface of the vineyards was extended to 9 hectares, planted with the three grape varieties in equal parts.

In a constant search for quality, André and Monique also increased the capacity of the cellars, digging the new caves by themselves, in Chamery’s sandy ground, in order to age their Champagne longer.

When their son Thierry joined the domain in 1979, all the step of champagne making were already being processed by the family and their 3 workers, including bottling and disgorging “a la volée” of the 70 000 bottles produced per year.

Lúuma started in 2016 as a joint project between the Mariani brothers of Scribe Winery and Matthew Plympton and Tom Hunter of Revel Wine. In bottlings released since then, Revel Wine has worked with John Harley & AJ Filipelli of INIZI Wines among others, with this Sauvignon Blanc being made by Alex Pomerantz of Subject to Change Wine. All of the wines in the lineup are made from organically grown grapes with minimal additions and manipulations with the goal of offering bright, honest and food friendly wines at an affordable price.
