The champagne house "Champagne Deutz" was founded in 1838 by the two Germans in Aÿ William Guillaume Deutz (1809-1884) and Peter-Joseph-Hubert Geldermann (1810-1869). Deutz had the craft in the champagne house Bollinger learned in Aÿ and met here his (also as a salesman) employed partner. At the end of the 1860s, René Deutz and Alfred Geldermann inherited the company from their fathers. Later, Alfred Geldermann married Marie Deutz, the sister of René Deutz, with which the bond was deepened. In 1882 Deutz was one of the founding members of the "Syndicat des Grandes Marques". Around 1900, it supplied European royal and imperial houses as well as South American state chancelleries. In the early 20th century, a branch was founded in the Alsatian town of Hagenau, which was then moved in 1924 to Breisach am Rhein (Baden) under the name "Sektkellerei Deutz & Geldermann". In 1927 Deutz & Geldermann was transformed into an AG. In 1988, the company was split into a Champagne (Champagne Deutz) and a sparkling wine producer (Badische Geldermann Privat-Sektkellerei). The founding daughter Marie Deutz had a Renè Lallier married, the Lallier family took over the Geldermann part.
Today, grapes of 190 hectares are processed, of which 46 hectares are owned. For some generations Deutz has maintained relationships with grape-producing winegrowers. The areas are located within a radius of 30 km around the Grand Cru community Aÿ. Three quarters of the processed grapes come from Grand Cru and Premier Cru communities. The two Cuvées de Prestige of the house are "William Deutz" ( Pinot Noir. Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay ) as well as the "Pure Amour de Deutz" made from Chardonnay, produced in 1993. The largest production share of around 75% is the "Brut Classic" brand (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay). Further products are the "Rosé", created in 2006 with unusually high Chardonnay content and "Rosé Brut", since 2012 the vintage blend "Blanc de Blancs", as well as the pure Pinot Noir "Homage" from the two spikes parcels "Le Meurtet" and "La Cote Galiciere". The product range comprises a total of 14 cuvées from Extra Brut to Demi-Sec. For the possession of Champagne Deutz counts since 1967, the winery Delas Frères with vineyards in the Rhone areas Côte Rôtie. Hermitage and Condrieu,
