One of the 17 Grande Marque Houses from Champagne. Dating back to 1772 the house has a rich and varied history. 'Veuve' translates as widow and is a reference to Barbe Nicole Ponsardin who ran the company from a very young age due to her husband's sad and untimely death in his early twenties. A woman running a business in the early 19th Century was rare indeed, but Barbe Nicole did not let that get in her way, going on to become a highly influential character in the Champagne region.
