The transition from one cellar master to the next is a key event for any champagne house, but for Maison Perrier-Jouët, which has had just seven cellar masters in over 200 years, it is truly a historic moment. In October 2020, Séverine Frerson will become the eighth cellar master – and the first woman to hold the position – in the history of the House, which was famously founded from the union of Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët in 1811.
As the world went into lockdown in spring 2020 following the Coronavirus pandemic, Maison Perrier-Jouët’s Artisans of the Wild opened a virtual portal into their homes to share how they kept creative throughout quarantine with the At Home With series. Forming a dialogue from London to Paris, Milan to Mexico, each Artisan showed how they found inspiration at home to keep up their respective practice – ranging from dance to design – and how their communities came together to support key workers as well as each other.
In these trying, uncertain times, we know that safety measures must be taken seriously. To ensure the well-being of the Maison Perrier-Jouët team, we have paused activity on all of our sites, with the exception of our vineyards. Thanks to a small number of extremely vigilant experts, we will be able to continue to nurture nature with the same care as we have done for over 200 years.
We want to encourage and congratulate everyone doing whatever they can to help. Now, more than ever, we must take care of one another, remember the things that truly matter, stay positive and – above all – stay safe.
On 13th February 2020, at Alex Eagle Studio in London, Maison Perrier-Jouët launched its very first magazine: a cultural and artistic exploration of the House’s singular vision of the world and nature that has driven it since its foundation in 1811.
Kicking off Design Miami/ 2019, Maison Perrier-Jouët unveiled “A Banquet of Nature”: an experience filled with surprising moments of re-enchantment to reconnect guests with nature and one another. “A Banquet of Nature by Perrier-Jouët” engaged guests in a new artistic tasting ritual, nourished by the creativity of Artisans of the Wild, who were present at Faena Hotel during the House’s inaugural banquet. The collaboration between these creative friends of the House and Maison Perrier-Jouët formed an authentic and unprecedented dialogue between nature, champagne, design and cuisine.
Maison Perrier-Jouët renews the dialogue between nature, champagne and design with Metamorphosis: a collection of six glasses and a champagne bowl by Italian designer Andrea Mancuso, of Analogia Project. It will be on display in a singular setting throughout Design Miami/ 2019. This collaboration is infused with Maison Perrier-Jouët’s vision of reinvented nature. It forms part of an artistic tasting ritual, exploring the metamorphoses of nature and the way the House transforms grapes into champagne using over 200 years of savoir-faire.
In Shanghai, between 8th November and 7th December 2019, Maison Perrier-Jouët presents an experiential journey inspired by reinvented nature, enriched by the creative freedom of its Artisans of the Wild.

The resulting creations then formed part of a banquet that took place in the eponymous restaurant of Pierre Gagnaire, three Michelin-starred French chef and the newest Maison Perrier-Jouët Artisan of the Wild. It was a taster of what’s to come with “A Banquet of Nature by Perrier-Jouët”, which will take place during Design Miami.

Between 17th and 23rd June 2019, Maison Perrier-Jouët assembled curious minds to take part in an unprecedented dialogue between champagne and gastronomy, revolving around nature.
