The world’s first champagne house has been a symbol of French art de vivre since it was founded in 1729. For nearly 300 years, Maison Ruinart has passed down time-honored savoir-faire through generations, supporting local craftsmanship and showcasing artistic talent while remaining firmly committed to continuous innovation. Engaged with the major challenges of its time, Ruinart is deeply committed to protecting the environment.
The House of Ruinart was founded on September 1, 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart. His uncle, a learned Benedictine monk called Dom Thierry Ruinart had incredible insight. He foretold that this new “wine with bubbles”, developed in his native region of Champagne and which the royal courts of Europe adored, was destined for a bright future.
The creation of the House of Ruinart coincided with the dawn of the Enlightenment in France and of the French “art de vivre”. There arose in France a true culture of everything good and beautiful, favoring fine and elegant, light and sophisticated, delicate and rare taste. The cuvées naturally found their place.
Driven by a constant quest for excellence and the absolute, the House selected chardonnay, a rare and fragile grape variety, as the common thread for all its cuvées.
