Dom Pierre Pérignon, O.S.B., (c. 1638–14 September 1715) was a French Benedictine monk who made important contributions to the production and quality of Champagne wine in an era when the region's wines were predominantly still and red. Popular myths frequently, but erroneously, credit him with the invention of sparkling Champagne, which didn't become the dominant style of Champagne until the mid-19th century.
The famous champagne Dom Pérignon, the préstige cuvée of Moët & Chandon, is named after him.
