About Veuve du Vernay
Veuve du Vernay is the leading French sparkling wine brand under $20 in the United States, channeling classic Parisian lifestyle and joie de vivre. It was founded in the 1960s by Robert Charmat, the son of scientist, Eugene Charmat who patented the Charmat Method of producing sparkling wines. Robert Charmat employed this method of trapping the carbonation from secondary fermentation to make his own sparkling wines full of fresh aromas and flavors. Robert named his wines for a widow in Vernay who helped his father during his early winemaking days. Veuve in French means widow. Veuve du Vernay is produced by Patriarche. Founded in 1780 in Beaune, the heart of Burgundy, Patriarche is a leading wine producer in France with two areas of focus: Burgundy appellation wines and fine sparkling wines.
