SAG winning and Emmy nominated actor, filmmaker, musician and philanthropist Idris Elba created Porte Noire in 2018, launching the first champagne Porte Noire blanc de blancs grand cru 2010. This vintage champagne is produced in Avize, the heart of Champagne where the best Chardonnay comes from. He then ventured to Cotes de Provence to create a stunning cru classé côtes de Provence, which is certified organic and vegan. His latest addition is a second champagne blanc de blancs grand cru NV Petite Porte. The first still wine in Elba’s Porte Noire portfolio is the Porte Noire Rose, which was served at Idris and Sabrina Dhowre Elba’s wedding in Marrakesh in 2019.
