Schlumberger was born in Stuttgart, Germany. As director of Ruinart, one of the leading champagne houses in Reims, France, he had the idea to produce champagne-like wine ("Schaumwein") in Austria using the French method but Austrian grapes.
In 1842 Schlumberger founded his company and started production in Bad Vöslau, a small town south of Vienna situated in a wine-growing region. In 1843 he married Mathilde Kirchner, the daughter of a wealthy factory owner, an alliance which helped him finance his business venture.
In 1878, one year before his death, Schlumberger was knighted ("Edler von Goldeck"). He died in Bad Vöslau.
