Champagne, long considered the wine of celebration, is also the first wine thought of for romance. Why? Well, why not?

Sparkling wine has been a part of celebrations in Europe since at least the French Revolution, when the drink became part of secular rituals that emerged to replace earlier religious rituals. We choose to mark both the joy and sanctity of the occasion. Champagne does this symbolically, but also visually, since it overflows in abundance and joy.

Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët shared a love of nature and the arts. She was a cultured young woman from a Norman merchant family; he was a masterful vintner and botanist. A year after their wedding, in 1811 they founded Maison Perrier-Jouët: born of their desire to create a Champagne House with a difference. The house has been associated with romance ever since.
