A family passion

The history of Veuve Ambal is first and foremost a family history. The company was created by Marie Ambal in 1898. Her grandson took over the management of the company a few years later. His own grandson was the next in line to take over the company.

Veuve Ambal tells the story of generation after generation of passion and expertise. These values are shared by all of the group's entities and stakeholders.

A family, a passion, Men and Women who have together created the History of the Veuve Ambal Group.


Royal Provence, a Provençal winery situated in Salon de Provence, has an expert understanding of the techniques of sparkling wine production. It produces Rivarose, a reference point in sparkling wines from the South of France.


Specialising in sparkling wines and, in particular, Crémant de Bourgogne, Veuve Ambal has chosen to diversify and complement its portfolio by collaborating with three reputed wineries: Prosper Maufoux, André Delorme and Rivarose.

Maison Veuve Ambal's philosophy can be summed up in one sentence: the rigour and quality that make its signature style.  

Prosper Maufoux was established in Santenay in 1860. It offers an extensive range of wines from appellations in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. 

André Delorme joined the Veuve Ambal Group in 2005. Established in Rully, where the history of Veuve Ambal itself began, André Delorme specialises in wines from the Côte Châlonnaise and also produces Crémants de Bourgogne.

Veuve Ambal comprises six domaines situated in the Burgundy region's best terroirs: Châtillonnais, the Auxerrois vineyards, the Côtes de Nuits and Côtes de Beaune as well as the Mâconnais. In order to produce its Crémant de Bourgogne, Veuve Ambal draws on the unique characteristics of each Burgundian terroir, just as an artist uses his palette of colours in order to magnify the beauty of his painting.
