There’s Something Special about Champagne!
12th July 2017
Listed as a World Heritage site by Unesco, Champagne has a fascinating history and is highly recommended as a place to visit.
The city of Epernay is situated in the heart of 30,000 hectares of vineyards in the French wine region ‘Champagne-Ardenne’. Epernay is the historic centre and heart of the Champagne region.
Take a walk along the Avenue de Champagne, the main street in Epernay, here you’ll find the avenue lined with grand mansions of numerous Champagne houses, including Moët & Chandon (which has the famous statue of Dom Pérignon outside), Boizel and Champagne de Venoge.
The Avenue de Champagne is one of the most expensive streets in the entire world, not for the stunning buildings above the ground, but for what is underneath this famous street, the millions of bottles of Champagne, more than 200 million bottles are stored here in a network of over 100km of cellars.
No walk along the Avenue would be complete without stopping off for a tour and enjoying a glass of Champagne while on this most famous street. Here Champagne-Booking.com can help, you can choose a house or two to visit for a tour and tasting and book for free online and pay when you arrive.
Of course, there’s much more to Champagne than just one street, the Champagne region covers a large area.
