- Presentation of the winery
Krug house was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, in Reims. Joseph Krug's dream was to create a high quality champagne, no subject to weather constraints. He decided to create a wine collection, which became his mixing palette and allowed him to ensure, year after year, the production of the best Champagne, called Grande Cuvée. He transmitted his knowledge and knowhow to his heirs, who keep producing champagne using his receiped and principles.
Krug House became and still is the unique House of Champagne producing prestige champagnes every year. Krug Champagnes are sold only when the have become mature. Krug House is THE prestige champagne reference.
Krug house now belongs to LVMH Group, but Olivier Krug, from the 6th generation, still manages the house and production according to Krugs principles and processes.

The purest quality of Champagne
The Champagne House Krug is now a venerable old lady, born in 1843 in Reims. Its founder, Johann-Joseph Krug (a German citizen from Mainz, which used to be controlled by France), spent 8 years working for the Maison Jacquesson before going his own way. Thanks to his partner Hippolyte de Vivès, and his will to create the best Champagne in the world (and the physical incarnation of pleasure), Joseph quickly succeeded in turning his new brand into an international powerhouse.
When he died in 1866, his son Paul rose up to the task of managing the family business, since he had been trained by Joseph. Like father like son, Paul Krug also aimed to unlock the hidden potential of all his wines and to reinforce the character of each parcel of his vineyard. His hard work truly paid off during the 1880's, when the popularity of the Champagne House Krug skyrocketed.
Since then, many members of the Krug family have helped the estate grow: Joseph Krug II, grandson of Johann-Joseph, in 1910; his son Paul Krug II, during the 1930's; Rémi and Henri Krug, in 1962. Finally, the Krug brand was bought in 1999 by the LVMH Group, which specializes in luxury goods. However, the estate remains in the family, with Olivier Krug (its proud sixth-generation representative) acting as the current director.
