Dom Perignon Cellar Tours


Dom Perignon - The Legend
In the late 17th century Dom Perignon, cellar master at the Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers near Epernay, discovered that giving the wine a second fermentation could produce a wine that had lots more sparkle. At the time these bubbles were considered an imperfection. He spent most of his time blending grapes from different vineyards, mixing wines from different harvests, to improve the overall quality, consistency, and uniformity of the wine.
