Marie Stewart Champagne
Established in Reims in 1867, La Maison de Champagne Marie Stuart belongs to the prestigious world of grand champagne houses. Its story began in 1867 in the heart of Reims, but its recent development dates to the 1960s when it moved to 8, Place de la République. She was Queen of Scotland and Queen of France, wife to Francis II and the rival of Queen Elizabeth I of England. The story of this monarch, her passionate and glamorous personality, her weaknesses and grandeurs, has always inspired artists, writers and poets of every age. She was very fond of the Champagne region where she stayed with her aunt Renata of Lorraine, at the time Abbess of Saint-Pierre-les-Dames Abbey in Reims. There she won the hearts of the local population. A street in Reims was renamed in her honor (one of its buildings is currently home to the Union of Champagne Houses).
Sparkling, noble and charming, Mary Stuart’s personality is everything that makes champagne magical. A queen of a hundred faces, a woman of many facets.
