It was in 1874 that Edmond BARNAUT, whose family had already been vine growers in Champagne for generations, decided to start making champagne under his own brand name.

In the same year Edmond married Appolline Godmé–Barancourt and it was an eventful year in many other ways too.

France has just pased through the period called La Commune and the first president of the 3rd Republic, Adolphe Thiers, was elected

On 15th April the first ever exhibition of Impressionist painting was held at the Nadar photographic gallery. Works by Boudin, Cézanne, Degas, Monet, Pissaro, Renoir and several others were on display

Alphonse Pénaud invented a motor driven by twisted rubber bands!

In the world of music Saint-Saëns gave the first ever concert of his Danse Macabre, Greig composed Peer Gynt and Verdi wrote his Requiem

Meanwhile Grant was the president of the United States and was waging war against the Comanches and other Indian tribes

Since then five generations of the Barnaut family have come along to carry on the work pioneered by Edmond all those years ago – in fact a sixth generation is on its way.

Today the family business is managed by Philippe Secondé whose ancestor, Jules Secondé, married Edmond Barnaut’s daughter Jeanne, so although the name has changed Phillipe can trace his history directly back to the foundation of the company almost 150 years ago.

Jules Secondé was not only a champagne maker but also a photographer and took a huge number of photographs that he made into post cards to use as a promotional tool. Fortunately many of them survive and they paint a vivid and fascinating picture of what life was like over a hundred years ago.
