Marc Hébrart and his wife started making Champagne in 1963, after which they gradually increased their holdings. In 1983, their son Jean-Paul started his own small production. In 1997 the family created Champagne Hébrart by merging the two enterprises, making Jean-Paul the director of the company. Their boutique estate now covers 12.5 hectares over 65 plots at Oiry and Chouilly, both Grand Cru villages, and Mareuil-sur-Ay, Bisseuil and Avenay-Val-d'Or, which are all Premier Crus. In the vineyard, natural methods of viticulture are practised; the estate does not use chemical pesticides or insecticides.
