CV-CNF is the acronym of the most important  Champagne wine cooperative and one of the most important in France. The Centre Vinicole de la Champagne (CVC) was established under the leadership of the Syndicat Général des Vignerons and the Fédération des Coopératives, in the heart of the AOC in a strategic and symbolic location as Chouilly, hill overlooking Épernay.

Henri Macquart was the man who solved the problem of surplus after the great harvest of 1970, highlighting the lack of storage capacity of the champagne. To ensure the sustainability of its business, Mr. Macquart sells his 12 hectares and the brand Nicolas Feuillatte to the first Union of Producers of champagne, the CV-CNF. Which is, today, the first Producers Guild of Champagne.
