Our story

THE VINICOLE COOPERATIVE OF COLOMBE-LE-SEC AND ENVIRONSAltitude: 243 mFût created on 29 September 1956 by 22 winegrowers determined for an area of 18 Ha spread over Colombé-le-Sec, Colombé-la-Fosse and Saulcy with only one press. Winegrowers from the communes of Rouvres-les-Vignes and Lignol-le-Château were quickly added. As the surface area increased, the structure expanded and the first bottles were sold in 1972 under the brand name CHARLES CLEMENT (founding member of the Cave)Today 59 harvesters for a surface area of 110 HA are associated within the Cave to produce all our Cuvées. The vineyard spread over several villages allows us to obtain blends representative of the slopes of the BARSURAUBOIS. 71 kms from Troyes, 8 kms from Bar sur Aube and 8 kms from Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises, Colombé-le-Sec has 154 inhabitants and extends over 878 Ha. Its name has been known since the 12th century: "Colombare Siccum" in 1101 under the name of "Colombarium". This name would come from "dove". Indeed, the village had many dovecotes, some of which belonged to the Abbey of Clairvaux. "The monks of Clairvaux had, in the past, a cellar there, which, in some titles, gave the village the name of Colombé le Cellier (14th century) On the territory passes a road that is believed to be Roman and which is said to have been built from Bar-sur-Aube to Vignory.
