Dom Pérignon



  • a Benedictine monk, called the ‘father of Champagne’, who was a cellar-master at the Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers in France in the late 1600s. Dom Pérignon is said to have been the first to accidentally trap the carbon dioxide created in the secondary fermentation of still table wine to create sparkling wine, though there is little historical evidence to confirm this.
  • a famous premium Champagne brand produced by Moët et Chandon
