The largest champagne production and trading house in the world with over 30 million bottles of champagne produced per year. This amount means that a bottle of the company is uncorked every second somewhere on earth. Every fourth bottle of champagne comes from the company, and its market share in the USA is 50%. The company was founded in Épernay in 1743 by Claude Moët (1683-1760), who had inherited some vineyards and started producing champagne. He was acquainted with Pierre Pérignon (1639-1715), with whose abbey, where this famous monk worked, the company was later to have a special relationship. The family had been involved in the wine trade in Champagne since the 14th century.
