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 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.
