Before we start all the fun stuff happening this Friday May 1st at our store, let’s talk about Ruinart is the oldest established Champagne house in Remis, France.
Since 1729, Ruinart Champagne has an authentic Champagne House. It is also the First Delivery of the “Wine with bubbles” since that time. At first the sparkling wine was a business gift for cloth purchasers, as Dom Ruinart’s brother was a cloth merchant, but 6 years later Maison Ruinart terminated its cloth selling activities due to success in the Champagne business. Since then, the Maison has kept the standards of excellence of its founders.
Ruinart has had a long standing relationship with the Arts. In 1895, Andre Ruinart asked Czech artist Alphonse Mucha to illustrate a poster of Ruinart. Today the brand is still closely involved with Contemporary Art and plays a role in numerous international events such as ARCO, the Foire de Bale, the Carre Rive Gauche, London Design, and Miami Art Basel.
The house utilizes talent today: India Mahdavi, created the “Champagne Spoon” bottle stopper in 2006, Christian Biecher, created the “Flower” bottle stopper in 2007, Patricia Urqiola, designed the “Fil d’Or” bottle stopper in 2010 and Maarten
So please be sure to stop by for a great night at Mel and Rose where we will sample Ruinart Champagne, French Films and Truffle Popcorn on May 1st, 2015 between 6-8 pm
