First Champagne House since 1729.

The Ruinart Maison was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart. His uncle, a learned Benedictine monk called Dom Thierry Ruinart had an 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. Driven by a constant quest for excellence and the absolute, Ruinart selected chardonnay, a rare and fragile grape variety, as the common thread for all its cuvées.  For nearly three centuries, the Ruinart wines presided over the destiny of the House, which became a benchmark for excellence and elegance in the world of champagne. Today, Ruinart is both a champagne of choice for an international clientele and one of the jewels in the crown of the LVMH group, the world leader in premium wines and spirits.
