Épernay The Essential
Épernay's flower-decked streets, which form an extension of the parks of the production houses, come to life in particular during the Habits de Lumière with festivities and champagne. The surrounding area is very charming, with its old buildings that have witnessed much history and their renowned sites such as the Côte des Blancs vineyards (Moët et Chandon, Mercier etc). Their cellars are open to visitors: the basement houses millions of bottles in 100km of galleries hewn out of the limestone!
