Wine Tourism

Many people come to the region to follow the champagne trail – from the prestigious champagne houses of Reims and Epernay, follow the sign-posted Champagne Tourist Route through vineyards and villages, stopping off at the Museum of the Vine at the Lighthouse of Verzenay for an overview, and at one of the many local producers of champagne for a personalised tour and tasting. Other places to taste include C Comme…, a champagne bar at Epernay with over 400 different kinds of champagne, or for an original location try the Perchingbar, a champagne bar up a tree in the forest behind Verzy! To taste the champagne made further south in the Aube vineyards, stop off at the beautiful stone village of Les Riceys or for the ultimate pilgrimage for lovers of champagne, visit the village of Hautvillers home of the ‘Father of Champagne’, monk Dom Pérignon.
