This route through the hills in and around Vitry is a great new way for visitors to discover the vineyards in the region of Vitry and the Lake Der. Zigzagging along small roads amidst hills, mountains and fields, the circuit is around 37 miles long and runs through 15 villages typical of the region's hedged farmland.

 

The route starts in Vitry-le-François, named after François I and nicknamed the Pink Town - don't miss the collegiate church of Notre-Dame, a lovely example of classical architecture. Pass the 18th century Porte du Pont and head towards Châlons-en-Champagne. You'll start seeing vineyards near Couvrot and on the slopes around Gravelines.
