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) founded. Deutz had the trade in the champagne house Bollinger learned in Aÿ and got to know his partner there (as a seller). At the end of the 1860s, René Deutz and Alfred Geldermann inherited the company from their fathers. Alfred Geldermann later married Marie Deutz, the sister of René Deutz, which further strengthened the bond. 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 offices. At the beginning of the 20th century, a branch was founded in the city of Hagenau in Alsace, which was then moved to Breisach am Rhein (Baden) in 1924 under the name "Deutz & Geldermann sparkling wine cellar". In 1927 Deutz & Geldermann was transformed into an AG. In 1988 the company split into a champagne (Champagne Deutz) and a sparkling wine producer (Badische Geldermann Privat-Sektkellerei). The founding daughter Marie Deutz married a Renè Lallier, the Lallier family took over the Geldermann part.
Today, 190 hectares of grapes are processed, of which 46 hectares are owned. Deutz has had relationships with the grape-supplying winegrowers for generations. The areas are located within a radius of 30 km around the Grand Cru community of 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 "Amour de Deutz" made from Chardonnay in 1993. The "Brut Classic" brand (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay) has the largest share of production at around 75%. Other products are the "Rosé" created in 2006 with an unusually high percentage of Chardonnay and "Rosé Brut", the vintage cuvee "Blanc de Blancs" since 2012, and the pure Pinot Noir "Hommage" from the two tops parcels "Le Meurtet" and "La Cote Galiciere". The product range comprises a total of 14 cuvées from Extra Brut to Demi-Sec. Champagne Deutz has also owned the Delas Frères winery with vineyards in the Rhône areas since 1967 Côte Rôtie.
