Marc Augustin has inherited a precious legacy: a love of life in all its many manifestations. This philosophy he shares with his wife Emmanuelle, who is equally committed to living in symbiosis with nature. Together, they have embraced contemporary biodynamics, viewing it not just as a method, but as a philosophy of life.

Their journey towards biodynamics began after a challenging harvest in 2012, prompting them to seek a fresh start in line with their values. Rejecting the conventional use of pesticides and chemical inputs, they transitioned their vineyards to organic farming in 2012 and fully embraced biodynamics in 2013.

For Marc, innovation is key to finding meaning in life. He constantly experiments with new techniques such as planting flax between vines and practicing permaculture to preserve biodiversity. These practices, along with a deep respect for the environment, ensure that Augustin champagnes faithfully reflect their terroir.

Their commitment to biodynamics extends to every aspect of their winemaking process. From non-traumatic pruning of vines in winter to careful selection of harvest days based on the lunar calendar, every decision is made with the goal of preserving the natural characteristics of the grapes.

In the cellar, Marc’s approach to winemaking is equally mindful. Rejecting artificial interventions, he prefers minimal to zero sulfur and sugar usage, applying yeast culture selected from the own vineyards, and employs vessels such as clay amphorae and wooden barrels to allow the wines to express themselves fully.

Their dedication to their craft is evident in every aspect of their lives. Emmanuelle’s passion for healing therapies like reflexology and homeopathy complements Marc’s approach to winemaking. Together, they believe in the importance of listening to nature and following their hearts in all they do. In their cellar you see meaningful illustrations of nature’s connected elements and particular minerals placed in the special positions according to the position of the planets.

Their commitment to biodynamics isn’t just a professional choice—it’s a personal one, rooted in a deep respect for the interconnectedness of all living things. As they nurture their vineyards and raise their two sons, Maxence and Arthur, they strive to pass on their values to the next generation.

In the end, Champagne Augustin is more than just a wine—it’s a reflection of Emmanuelle and Marc’s shared philosophy of life. Each bottle embodies their belief in harmony, balance, and the power of nature to create something truly extraordinary.
