The history of the Maison Krug testifies to the incredible adventure of a visionary. Joseph Krug, its founder, was a nonconformist man, endowed with an extraordinary determination and a philosophy without compromises, that he knew how to understand the very essence of Champagne: pure pleasure. Transcending the expectations of his time, he aspired to offer his customers the highest expression of Champagne, year after year, regardless of the unknowns of the climate. Creating an extensive library of reserve wines, Joseph Krug founded the first Maison de Champagne that recreates only Cuvée de Prestige every year. Since 1843, the year of its foundation, six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated its vision and enriched its savoir faire.
