Dilettantes is a unique Champagne cellar, located in central Paris. Our inspiration is the artisan Champagne producers who offer spectacular creations but, as they are independent winemakers, lack access to the Parisian market. In the city, the choice is often only one of the different Great Champagne Houses, les Grands Maisons, available in retail supermarkets and other wine boutiques. With the help of Dilettantes, 25 artisan winemakers have arrived in Paris!
Dilettantes, is (also) the story of Fanny Heucq, daughter of a winemaking family. She is fulfilling the ambition of a generation by opening a boutique to honor grower Champagnes, or the Champagnes de Terroirs.
