About Dom Perignon

Dom Perignon is a brand of vintage Champagne produced by the Champagne house Mot & Chandon and serves as that house's prestige champagne. It is named after Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk who was an important quality pioneer for Champagne wine but who, contrary to popular myths, did not discover the champagne method for making sparkling wines. Dom Perignon (1638-1715) was a monk and cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers.
