Heritage of Ruinart

Founded in 1729, inspired by the vision of Dom Thierry Ruinart, a scholar and visionary, and his uncle, a Benedictine monk. The legacy began with the sale of 170 bottles in 1730, escalating to 36,000 by 1761. Today, Ruinart’s Crayères, a marvel of Gallo-Roman engineering, are pivotal in the storied history and cultivation of its unique Champagne, providing the perfect conditions for aging.
