      A sparkling history

      You may be familiar with the prestigious Champagne Dom Perignon, but did you know that it's part of the Moet et Chandon brand? The upscale bubbly's namesake was a Benedictine monk who was an important pioneer for the quality and production of Champagne in a time when the region's wines were predominantly red, but, contrary to popular belief, he did not discover the method for making sparkling wines.

      Dom Perignon is a vintage Champagne, meaning that it's only made during the best years and the grapes used to make it are harvested within the same year. (Non-vintage Champagne, which constitutes most bubbly brands, is made from grapes harvested in different years.) The first Dom was produced in 1921, but wasn’t released for sale until 1936.
