History

Pierre Pérignon, called Dom Pérignon was a monk in a French Benedictine order. He has developed the method of bottle fermentation for the production of champagne significantly. For this reason, the champagne brand Dom Pérignon is named after him by Möet and Chandon. On Dom Pérignon also the widespread bottle filling volume of 0.75 liters goes back that this had determined as the average consumption of male adults at dinner. Well then cheers....of course with a champagne ... The history of the company began in 1742 when Claude Moët sold wine from Champagne to Paris. In 1794 Moët bought the former monastery Hautvillers. There, the monk Dom Pérignon refined the production techniques for champagne. As a result, Moët soon made exports to other countries in Europe as well as the United States.

Napoleon was a friend of Moët and led the Moët champagne always with him in the years of war and thus helped the Moët champagne to its Europe-wide reputation.

The name Moët and Chandon originated in 1833, when the company each half went to the son of Moët and the son-in-law Chandon. Moët & Chandon were royal court suppliers in Hungary - Austria as well as in England. The estate includes about 1150 hectares of vineyards in Champagne distributed to about 200 wine-growing communities. Moët & Chandon owns the largest and most extensive chalk cellars in Épernay. The courses stretch over 28 km and are the largest in the entire Champagne region. They have their own street names. The oldest storage areas in this cellar go back to the founding year 1742.
