DEVAUX House is at the heart of a family saga which begins with the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux shortly before the middle of the 19th century.

The Devaux House was then managed by three inspiring women who led the family winery with remarkable energy and talent in equal measure.

The first woman, Claude-Joseph Devaux (born Ducray), widowed at 39 years old in 1843, founded in 1846 and managed the house “Maison Vve A. Devaux″ in Epernay with her son François-Auguste.

His wife, Augusta-Maria Herbin, was to become the second “Devaux widow″ following his death in 1879. She was in charge of the winery until 1895.

The DEVAUX brand quickly became successful.

By the turn of the century, DEVAUX was exporting 75% of its production.

Then in 1907, following the death of Charles-Auguste Devaux, Marguerite Marie-Louise, the third “Devaux widow” born Hussenot, took over the reins and managed the winery until her death in 1951 at the age of 80, thus concluding an extraordinary saga of “Champagne widows″.

She was succeeded by her two sons.

Champagne DEVAUX now represent many families. Indeed, this Maison was handed down more than 30 years ago - with a long-term vision - to our families of winemakers.

They have all engaged in a human endeavour based on cooperation, and high quality standards.

In fact, the last in the Devaux line, Jean-Pol Auguste Devaux, was without an heir.

As such, in 1987 he entrusted the future of Devaux – a brand with a prestigious past and an exciting future – to the “Union Auboise”, now the “Groupe Vinicole Champagne DEVAUX” (then supplier for the DEVAUX “Blanc de Noirs” champagne).

Throughout the years, the cooperative associates of Champagne DEVAUX lovingly lead the vine to deliver its best fruits. They deploy their efforts and their know-how to raise the grapes to the level of excellence required by the taste and character of a Grand Champagne.

A History of three Champagne Widows

The history of Champagne Devaux started with Jules and Auguste Devaux in the middle of the 19th century. However, the most interesting evolution happened through three inspiring women that secured the family estate in the following decades. The first Devaux woman was Claude-Josephte Devaux: widowed at age 39, she took over the humble family winery and set it out for success by founding “Maison Vve A. Devaux” in 1846. Together with her son François-Auguste she managed the family business until the end of her days.

When François-Auguste passed shortly after his mother, his wife Augusta-Maria inherited the lead of the winery in 1879, and thus became the second Devaux widow to continue the family business. Under her talent and enthusiasm, the brand Devaux turned into a flourishing champagne house and gained lots of recognition and popularity. She deceased in 1895 and left behind a business that had grown its exports to a staggering 75% of its production by the end of the century.

Charles-Auguste Devaux filled the gap in management afterwards, yet fate had prepared another turn for Champagne Devaux, and sadly he died just a few years later. His wife Marguerite Marie-Louise, the third Devaux widow, then rose to govern the winery in 1907, and stepped into the footprints of her two widowed predecessors, managing the domain for over 40 years until she passed away in 1951, closing an eventful saga of three widows.
