Tomás Saraceno’s artistic approach is based on carefully observing nature, just like the work looking after the vines at Maison Ruinart. For several years now, in the Champagne region, grapes ripen more quickly and harvest begins earlier and earlier in the year. In 30 years, the average temperature has increased by 1.3°C. This is the symptom of a wider, global climate crisis, which has led Maison Ruinart to actively protect the environment through sustainable viticulture practises fostering biodiversity. Ecodesign is also essential to its vision of packaging, while the supply chain has been transformed to focus on less polluting modes of transport.
To share this enlightened vision, Maison Ruinart has invited environmentally committed artists including Tomás Saraceno to create a sitespecific works of art in its historic terroir.
Tomás Saraceno’s Movement reveals glimpses of a new era free from fossil fuels, batteries, lithium, solar panels, helium, hydrogen, and carbon emissions.
"In my work, precision and awareness of the environment are essential. An extra degree in temperature can have an enormous impact on the texture and aromas of our wines.” Frédéric Panaïotis, Cellar Master, Maison Ruinart
