Discover: Ruinart Champagne, The World’s Oldest Champagne

The oldest established Champane house, Ruinart, having been producing since 1729, established by a monk, Dom Thierry Ruinart.

He was an intuitive, visionary, hardworking, and modest Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709 and was a contemporary of Louis XIV. exposed to the city and court where he gained an awareness of a more worldly life and in-particular he learned of a new “wine with bubbles,” not yet known as champagne, which was already popular among young aristocrats.

Old Champagne, Contemporary History

Dom Ruinart was an author of scholarly works, but also 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. In 1729, twenty years after the death of Dom Ruinart, Nicolas Ruinart, Dom Ruinart’s nephew, founded the first Champagne House, Maison Ruinart, and forever ingrained his uncle’s name and the house in the history books.
