The Bara property was built in 1860. In the beginning, it was a farm with stables, a cow shed, a sheep pen and a cellar; however, in 1965, the barn was transformed into a press room and a winery. Paul Bara, the father of today’s owner Chantale, was the first of the dynasty to sell champagne under the brand of the same name in the 1950s. In 1975, the Bara champagne house innovatively became one of the first to export its champagnes to the United States. Today, the brand has a long-standing tradition of transatlantic sales and continues to work with the same US importer as back in the day. Nowadays Paul Bara champagnes are sold on all continents of the world.
The Paul Bara vineyards are in Bouzy. This is one of the premier areas for the cultivation of Pinot Noir in Champagne and all parcels here have Grand Cru status. Bara Grand Rosé is a rich and flavourful champagne displaying the distinctively elegant character of Pinot Noir.
