Founded in 1818 by husband and wife Nicolas François Billecard and Elisabeth Salmon, the Billecart-Salmon House is rich with history. For nearly two hundred years, the Billecart family has been handing down the secrets to making exceptional champagne from generation to generation. Today the House is still independent and is run by the family’s 6th generation: François Roland-Billecart.
