On November 3rd 1927, the gates of Avize winter wine school opened for the first time to 13 students between 15 and 16.This school was the outcome of deep thinking resulting from a strong need for increased knowledge and skills after the XIXth-century phylloxera crisis .
This dream came true, with the donation made by Puisart family, and this started the wonderful story of the Champagne wine growing school of Avize.

In 1952, 16 former students got together, and revived the former student association which had been created in 1939 ; finding absurd not to be able to train to Champagne making within the school, the school vineyard being so small, while having at their disposal the wonderful cellars bequeathed by Puisard family, they decided to bring to the school still wines, tools, bottles and corks….. and their enthusiasm and they volunteered to make wine with the students in the school.

With a nearly 100-year-old history closely related to winegrowing champagne area, with its opening toward many partnerships, and with the help of the ministry of agriculture, of the Champagne wine trade, and of Champagne Ardenne regional council, Champagne winegrowing school became Avize Viti Campus in 2012 and now aims at becoming the role model of a XXIst century winegrowing teaching center.
