The extraordinary story of Perrier-Jouët began way back in 1811, precisely one year after the two founders, Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët, got married. He was then 25 and she was 18 when they decided to give life to their Maison. From the beginning, their talent was evident thanks to the 10 hectares of vineyards owned by the Perrier family, located between Epernay, Aÿ, Avenay, Dizy, Pierry and Chouilly, and soon their Maison became famous for the production of Champagne of excellent quality. This success was also thanks to the farsightedness of Pierre-Nicolas, who over time bought some plots of land in those areas that would become famous as Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs, in Avize and Cramant. Thanks to the tireless efforts to enhance the brand, one of the best commercial networks of the time was created, spreading the name of Perrier-Jouët throughout the world.
