Dedicated wine‑growers

Visiting a vineyard is an opportunity to meet the people who are passionate about their work and who are always eager to share their knowledge with you. Follow the Champagne Tourist Route and reconnect with this wonderful natural environment so cherished by our wine-growers.

A passion for the terroir

and the vines

There are over 15,000 wine-growers in Champagne. They own 90% of the Champagne vineyards, i.e. almost all of them. For generations, they have been the ones who create Champagne’s selection of distinctive wines.

Would you like to know more about how the grapevines are nurtured, how champagne is made or how it is bottled? Our wine producers are keen to share their expertise and passion with you. Visiting a wine-maker allows you to learn about what their work entails.

Just 15 minutes away, the 600 kilometres of the Champagne Tourist Route awaits you, and with it, numerous producers invite you to visit their cellars, to chat and share their knowledge over an enjoyable tasting.

      High Environmental Value

      The High Environmental Value (HVE) label guarantees that the agricultural practices used on a farm as a whole preserve the natural ecosystem and reduce the pressure on the environment (soil, water, biodiversity, etc.) to a minimum. This is a proactive approach implemented by farmers to promote best practices.

      Sustainable viticulture in Champagne

      This demanding certification encourages Champagne producers to adopt sustainable practices. It is made up of 99 points around 3 main themes:

      • Compliance with regulations
      • The requirements of the High Environmental Value (HVE) certification
      • Requirements specific to the Champagne region that complement the HVE areas

      Today, over 15% of Champagne’s vineyards are certified.
