Listen to Episode 72: Champagne Laurent-Perrier with President Michelle DeFeo”
Champagne House Laurent-Perrier, founded in 1812, can be credited with many of the cutting edge ideas that have defined champagne production.
They are responsible for pioneering rose, as well as a style of champagne called Brut Nature that has zero dosage (any additional sugar). Laurent-Perrier is also the largest family and female run Champagne House in the world.
Francofile, New Jersey Native, and President of Laurent-Perrier, Michelle DeFeo has been at the helm since 2014, but her experience in the champagne business goes back to the very beginnings of her career.
For this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast, we discussed her journey to the champagne business, the feminist history of Laurent-Perrier, and what kind of responsibility comes with leading the largest female run Champagne House in the world.
