Maison Ruinart's relationship to nature, like the vine our champagne derives from, is deeply rooted. Our champagne depends on nature. It is our role and duty to protect it.
The impact of climate change on vines has accelerated and has become a major issue. Between 2003, when France experienced an alarming heatwave, and 2019, Champagne had five early harvests, starting in August instead of September.
As wine is made throughout the year, every moment in the vineyard can be crucial to the creation of a cuvée. The Maison celebrates nature by working passionately and respectfully with the fruit it provides. Beyond necessity, sustainability is a source of innovation and a driving force of creativity for Ruinart.
