Grower Champagnes and sparkling wines are those produced by the same estate that owns the vineyards and grows the grapes. While the large Champagne houses may use grapes sourced from the entire Champagne Region producing large quantities of big name bubbles, Grower Wines are characterized by small production artisanal winemaking with terroir -- the idea that the weather, soil, and environmental influences gives a vineyard an identifiable character -- being at the forefront for each wine.
