The Taittinger family started in the alcohol trade as wine merchants in and around Paris back in 1870 before they acquired the Chateau de la Marquetterie in 1932. The chateau originates from 1734 and the accompanying vineyards were planted in the 18th century. The original chateau, winery and vineyards were developed by Brother Jean Oudart, a Benedictine monk and one of the founding fathers of champagne.
In the early years of the Taittinger ownership the family invested into the winery and particulary its ancient cellars and the brand started to achieve its International recognition from the 1960’s.

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.
