Abbaye Saint-Pierre d'Hautvillers
Why go there?
Visits on heritage days only.
The abbey, founded in 650 by Saint Nivard, archbishop of Reims, hosted Dom Pérignon whose life is closely associated with the creation of champagne wines.
The abbey is now the property of the Moët & Chandon champagne label.
In 2012, the abbey's cloisters were restored and the Saint-Hélène doorway was identically reconstructed by Moët & Chandon in association with Architectes des Bâtiments de France.
