STATION OENOTECHNIQUE DE CHAMPAGNE® is the only brand in the world that specialises exclusively in offering products and services related to the elaboration of effervescent wines, both Classic Method and Martinotti Method. Born in Epernay in 1971, thanks to Pierre Martin and Georges Hardy, it became part of the SOFRALAB® Group in 1993, thus strengthening its presence on an international level. With over a century of history, the SOFRALAB® Group is in fact a pioneering and benchmark player in the market for oenological products and associated services, with a presence now established in over 75 countries. In addition to STATION OENOTECHNIQUE DE CHAMPAGNE®, the Group also owns 3 other brands, OENOFRANCE®, MARTIN VIALATTE® and OENOTERRIS®, all of which are related to the design and marketing of oenological products, research and development, consultancy and analysis. Since its creation, the Group has never ceased to invest in innovation, gradually expanding its R&D team with specialised technicians, developing an in-house microvinification cellar (CAVE EXPERIMENTALE at the Campus located in Montagnac - France), and also extending its analytical support centres, which now number 11 laboratories between Italy and France. Driven by a far-sighted vision and concrete objectives, the R&D team imagines, formulates and creates innovative biotechnologies to guarantee a complete and constantly evolving range. Collaborations with universities and international application experience, together with direct and continuous dialogue with customers, constantly enrich the company's know-how and allow us to be a reliable and competent partner.
