The House of Ruinart was the first established House of Champagne in 1729 and inspired by the intuition of a monk well ahead of his time. Since then, it has been creating its champagnes in the same spirit of innovation, purity and timeless elegance, combining delicacy and subtle freshness, from the finest grapes, skilful blending and extensive ageing in 2000 year old cellars, said to be the most historically beautiful cellars in France.

Dom Thierry Ruinart was an intuitive, visionary, hardworking, and modest Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709. At the age of 23 he left his home in Champagne to go to the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, one of the most influential centres of learning near Paris. While there, he was exposed to the city and court where he learned of a new “wine with bubbles,” not yet known as champagne, which was already popular among young aristocrats.

Dom Ruinart had a taste for the contemporary and his inquiring mind went hand in hand with a keen business sense. Throughout his life, he would visit his brother and home in Champagne and these diverse observations instilled in him the conviction that "wine with bubbles" produced from the vines of his native soil – also known as “vin de mousse” or sparkling wine – had a promising future. He passed on this conviction to his brother and his nephew.

Twenty years after the death of Dom Ruinart, Nicolas Ruinart, his nephew, started his first account ledger devoted to "wine with bubbles" on September 1st, 1729. Thereby founding the first Champagne House, Maison Ruinart, and forever ingrained his uncle's name and the house in the history books.

On April 12, 1817, Louis XVIII granted nobility to François Irénée Ruinart along with the heraldic crest which has appeared on the labels of Ruinart bottles ever since. Excellence and luxury are combined within the distinctly shaped bottle, found at only the most luxurious and enigmatic restaurants and establishments.
