The House of Dom Perignon Champagne

Dom Pérignon was the 17th century Benedictine monk who has gone down in history as the person who "invented" Champagne. His name was originally registered by Eugène Mercier. He sold the brand name to Moët & Chandon, which used it as the name for its prestige cuvée, which was first released in 1937.

The Abbey of Hautvillers was born in the 7th century of a dream that came to Saint Nivard. Ten centuries later, Dom Pierre Pérignon gave this heritage its most dazzling interpretation. The extraordinary quality of the wine he devised and produced in the secrecy and religious fervour of the Abbey makes him the spiritual father of champagne and one of the greatest visionaries of modern wine-making. The Abbey of Hautvillers is to this day the custodian of the memory of the wine, touchstone of its past as of the vintages still to come, timeless guardian of the spirit of Dom Pérignon: home of a unique inspiration.
