Ruinart was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart, making it the oldest establish Champagne house. Nicolas’s uncle was Dom Thierry Ruinart and his dream was to produce sparkling wines, but French laws of the time stated that wines must be transported barrels making distant selling of champagne impossible. In 1728 French law changed authoring wine being able to be sold in bottles. Ever the entrepreneur Nicolas quickly founded his wine business and within 4 months of starting producing they were selling what was then marketed as ‘wine with bubbles’. Nicolas’s business origins was as a cloth merchant but such was the success of ‘wine with bubbles’ within 6 years Nicolas had exited the cloth trade to focus on his champagne business.
Ruinart has a uniquely bell shaped bottle, completely different to anything else in champagne. When champagne is produced the 2nd fermentation occurs within the bottle, this is how the sparkling bubbles are produced, and some say the shape of the Ruinart glass adds to its taste.
