The harmonious hillsides make this region one of France's finest for winegrowing.
Leaving Reims or Epernay (the itinerary is signposted in both directions), the 45-mile trail crosses
right through the heart of a regional nature reserve.

Delve into the history of Reims where the city’s three-century-old vines, underground tunnels, Le Vergeur Museum and fine arts museum are the first sights on your itinerary before you head off to explore the more reserved and intimate side of Champagne, with a first stop at the village of Gueux. Further along you will be able to spot Saint-Lié Chapel on the brow of a hill.

 

 

The path that winds around the hill affords a superb view of the whole region of the plain of Reims. This road will take you to Epernay, the capital of Champagne, whose busy overground wine industry greatly contrasts with the peace and quiet along the miles and miles of cellars where millions of bottles rest in waiting. This is another world to discover…
