This was why we decided to partner as sponsors of Chef Fregz, Fregz a porter, because of the brand’s appreciation and passion for family and values.”

Also present were loyal Champagne enthusiasts and connoisseurs looking forward to tasting Champagne that is different from all the other brands presently oversaturated in the Nigerian market.
The firm said it hopes to become a brand that is enjoyed by Nigerians not because of its superior taste but more importantly because of the brand’s heritage and unique passion for family values that has allowed it to stand the test of time.
Founded in the 1860s from vineyards in Montagne de Reims, Canard Duchêne was created purely out of love, when a barrel-maker called Victor Canard met a winemaker’s daughter called Léonie Duchêne.
