Ruinart is one of the oldest Champagne houses in the world, with a rich history dating back to 1729. The brand is renowned for producing some of the finest Champagnes, with a focus on quality, elegance, and refinement.
Dom Thierry Ruinart, a Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709, was a visionary, intuitive, and modest individual. At 23 years of age, this brilliant theologian and historian left his hometown of Champagne to study at the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a prominent center of learning near Paris. During his time there, he gained exposure to city life and the royal court, developing an appreciation for a more worldly existence. It was there that he learned of a new type of wine, still unnamed as champagne, which was already beloved among young aristocrats.
