Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and is to this day still family owned. Over the years the vineyard holdings have been steadily increased with the largest expansion taking place under the leadership of the legendary Madame Lily Bollinger. Today it is managed by her great-nephew, Ghislain de Montgolfier. 007's favourite and with vintages produced only in exceptional years - Bollinger is also one of the few Champagne Houses to produce the majority of their own grapes for their blends.
"I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.”
Lily Bollinger, 17th October 1961
