Lucio De Faveri and Champagne Jean Pernet

Lucio De Faveri and Christophe Pernet known each other way back in 1997 during an exposition in Ulm, Germany. Lucio was really impressed by the quality of these Champagne wines and when Christophe invited him to visit its estate in Mesnil sur Oger in the summer of the same year, he didn’t miss this opportunity. Here he could see close up this small family-owned winery, highlighting the high quality of its products.
Mr. Pernet, at that time, had few possible clients in Italy, but any importer that can act as an intermediary; thus, he wanted Lucio to become his importer for the Italian market. Since 2001, De Faveri Spumanti imports and sell Champagne Jean Pernet all over Italy.
