The House of Krug was founded in Reims in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a visionary with an uncompromising philosophy who understood that the essence of Champagne is pleasure itself. Transcending the notion of vintage, he wanted to offer the very best to his clients every year, regardless of climate variations. By respecting the individuality of every plot and by establishing an extensive ‘library’ of reserve wines, Joseph Krug founded the first and only Champagne House to exclusively create Prestige Champagnes every year since its foundation. His vision and savoir-faire have been perpetuated and enriched by six generations of the Krug family.This book is a tribute to those whose hearts and souls were touched by Krug and who have contributed through different times with their appreciation and love were the engine to the House’s evolution.

Featuring historical and newly discovered images from the Krug archives as well as from the House’s voyages to mythical places, this beautiful volume relates personal quotes and anecdotes from passionate Krug Lovers around the world: legends Boni de Castellane and Ernest Hemingway; food and wine luminaries including Michelin 3-star chefs Arnaud Lallement and Hiroyuki Kanda; contemporary artists such as Keziah Jones and Georges Rousse; and icons Serge Gainsbourg and Karl Lagerfeld. House Director Olivier Krug and Serena Sutcliffe, Sotheby’s worldwide head of wine, introduce the book with their own journeys through the world of Krug
