Bollinger has roots in the Champagne region dating back to 1585 when the Hennequins, one of the Bollinger founding families, owned land in Cramant.
Before the Bollinger house was founded, in the 18th century the Villermont family practised wine making, though not under their family name.
They produce several labels of Champagne under the Bollinger name, including the vintage Vieilles Vignes Françaises, Grande Année and R. In Britain Bollinger Champagnes are affectionately known as "Bolly".
Founder Jacques Joseph Bollinger married Charlotte de Villermont.
The couple had a daughter, Marie, who had two sons Joseph and Georges.
The winemaker has also used the popular James Bond film series as a marketing device.
In the 1973 film Live and Let Die, James Bond (played by Roger Moore) is heard asking for a bottle of Bollinger after entering his hotel. " In the 2002 film Die Another Day, James Bond (played by Pierce Brosnan) is heard asking for a bottle of 1961 Bollinger immediately after being released from a North Korean prison.
Since 1994, Ghislain de Mongolfier has managed Bollinger.
