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.

I LOVE comments and feedback. Just make it nice! ;)
