The history of Veuve Ambal is first and foremost a family history.
Anne Marie Ninot was born in Rully in 1859 in the heart of the Burgundy wine-growing regions. 20 years later she was married to a Parisian banker, Antoine Emile Ambal. She will follow him in Paris and they will have two children.
At her husband’s death, Marie returned to her native village of Rully with her brother, he was an owner and merchant of Burgundy wines.
At the time it was the beginnings of the Champagne method. Marie was interested in it and decided to create her own Maison in 1898. To begin with, she produced both red and white high-quality sparkling wines with the champagne-method.
Her grandson took over the management of the company a few years later and his own grandson, Mr Piffaut was the next in line to take over the company.
