Who will be the next Dom Pérignon?

Do you know why Hautvillers is so famous in the world?

Hautvillers is well-known thanks to a monk called Dom Pérignon, who was equally famous and mysterious, and who used to live there. Dom Pérignon’s name is associated with the exploitation of the vines and the production of wines that contributed to the wealth of the monastery in the 17th century. More than a century later, due to sketchy sources and the lack of written evidence from the man himself, a legend developped around him as the inventor of champagne. After stopping up flasks of white wine with airtight corks made of bees’ wax, the tale goes that he thus caused a second fermentation to take place due to sugar flowing out. That was how the effervescence and the bubbles that are peculiar to the wines of Champange were allegedly born. The true genius of the monk resided in his ability to assemble the best grapes from different varieties of vines. His science, which is still admired today, is what put the abbey’s wines on royal tables and built their reputation for excellence.

Reference to this legend, we propose you a new activity in our press. We made a character in life-size of  Dom Pérignon. Your job? Take place behind the figurine and take a picture of you! Now, you are the creator’s new generation of champagne!

Have your cameras!

Share your pictures on social networks (Facebook, instagram, tweeter or Google +) by tagging it with #josephdesruets! The most beautiful photos will be shared on our Facebook wall 🙂

See you soon 😉
