Ruinart Maison

The Ruinart Maison is unlike any other. It was the first established Champagne house in 1729; it was inspired by the intuition of a monk well ahead of his time, Dom Ruinart. Elegance and discretion are part of the DNA of the Maison, as its history dates back to the beginning of the enlightenment century.

The Ruinart family has run the House steadfastly for over two centuries. The 9 generations have demonstrated the enduring character of Maison Ruinart and also its ability to welcome strong and varied personalities: Claude, who settled the current and historical property with the well known « Crayeres »; Edmond, the traveller at the origin of the first exports, Andre, the communicator… and many more.

The Maison illustrates its style through its Champagnes range: R, Blanc de Blancs, Rosé and Dom Ruinart. We also find it in the close relationship between the Maison and art. As a matter of fact, this has lead Ruinart to pursue an international artistic collaboration every year since 2006, and to its participation in more than 30 different Art Basel fairs worldwide.
