The Taittinger family who is at the head of the Champagne House with the same name, is involved in its community from generation to generation.
Taittinger is a family-owned champagne house whose story mirrors the family at its head. Tenacity, elegance and liveliness are three characteristics that can be associated with the Taittinger family and their business. Although the history of the house dates back to 1734, it was not until 1932 that Pierre Taittinger acquired the Château de la Marquetterie to develop a champagne house that bears his name. Sold in 2005 to American investors, it was acquired a year later by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, grandson of the founder. For Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, this acquisition is the symbol of both a desire to preserve the family patrimony and a strong economic patriotism. Moreover, this dedication to French society is an important value for the Taittinger family. From generation to generation, the Taittingers are involved in their community. Among other things, they created in 1967 the prestigious international culinary prize Le Taittinger whose aim is to reveal young culinary talents. Today, the children of Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, Clovis and Vitalie, follow in the footsteps of their ancestors by getting involved in the family business as in their community.
