The history of the Gruet family dates back centuries and is closely linked to the town of Buxeuil in the most southern region of Champagne, Cotes des Bar. Whilst the history of Gruet can be traced to historical vineyard plots it was in 1975 that Claude Gruet produced his first Champagne cuvee. Their first production was of 2,500 bottles of champagne but the family are working on developing a 20 hectare vineyard as well as working co-operatively with local vineyards in order to fill ambitions of producing 2 million bottles per year.
Is Gruet champagne good? Gruet produce a traditional style champagne symbolic of stainless steel vat ageing that makes a fresh, light crisp youthful champagnes.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. This may include increase the size of some fonts within the message to pay particular focus on key lines or phrases, spacing message over extra lines and removing unnecessary punctuation.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
The fonts we currently use are: Lucida Calligraphy, Lucida Handwriting, Verdana and Segoe Print.
