Situated between Reims and Épernay, this region's natural and built heritage can be explored by car
by following the Champagne Trail, which criss-crosses the region.

Here, the vineyards of Montagne de Reims lie between the wooded massif of Reims Mountain Regional Natural Park and the agricultural plain. The world’s only reserve of dwarf beeches, known as the "Faux de Verzy", exemplifies the uniqueness of this area covered in forest. This landscape, with winegrowing villages nestled among the vines, extends towards Reims with a green corridor that runs along the Canal de l'Aisne à la Marne.

In the hills above Reims, the champagne cellars of Colline Saint-Nicaise, for which an application has been submitted for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List, house thousands of bottles of Champagne.

 



This area has microclimates suited to growing the three grape varieties that are authorised in the Champagne region, to produce a wide range of wines with varied characteristics owing to the blending and ageing carried out by winegrowers.
