La Route du Champagne en fête in Bar-sur-Aube!

The 2019 edition of ‘Route du Champagne en fête’ will take place on 27 and 28 July in the Vallée de l’Arce en Seine, in the Aube region. This hillside area, named after the beautiful river which flows through it, is full of gorgeous valleys, forests and waterways. It’s here that an enormous champagne route has been set out for you to enjoy many different champagnes. A route you’ll never forget!

Savour gastronomic lunches curated by wine experts, wonderful expositions about champagne and charming street musicians. History buffs can also take an interesting walk along the stone winemakers’ houses or ‘cadoles’ in the vineyards. In short, the perfect opportunity to get to know champagne and this beautiful region!

The Champagne route

27 & 28 July

Enjoy the two full days of this unique champagne festival! You can taste champagnes for 8 hours each day: Saturday from 10am to 6pm, Sunday from 11am to 7pm.

Champagne passport

When you sign up for the champagne route, you receive a few fun items. Use your champagne ‘passport’ to register your visits and tastings at all the producers! You’ll also receive a map to make following the route easy – as well as your own champagne flute, a bottle of water and a breath tester.

More than 20 tastings at champagne producers

During a delightful walk through the prettily decorated villages, you’ll encounter more than 20 producers. The doors to their secret wine cellars are thrown open during these two days, exclusively for visitors. Discover the passion of the producers while you sip a delicious glass of their sparkling champagne!

Decorated villages and an amazing atmosphere

During this festive event, the villages literally blossom. More than 300,000 flowers are carefully grown for display on these two days. Every village becomes a work of art! Streets are also decorated with cheerful quotes. You’ll find the love of champagne wherever you look. Atmospheric street performance, fun music and lots of champagne lovers make this event an absolute party. There’s so much to see and do!

Discover Troyes

This city has a lovely centre with many squares and café terraces. Its history is almost tangible. And a broad range of restaurants mean you can get to know French cuisine and the beautiful champagnes. We can make lunch and dinner reservations for you, which is particularly advisable during busy periods.

Visit historic buildings and museums in and around Troyes

We definitely recommend visiting the spectacular Saint-Pierre or Saint-Paul cathedrals, Saint Madeleine church, Saint Urbain basilica or the Saint Pantaléon church. The Saint Urbain basilica is a gothic masterpiece with beautiful stained-glass windows and the Saint Pantaléon church is home to an impressive collection of statues. They give you an excellent impression of the gothic style, as well as housing an array of local treasures inside.

Interested in museums? You have plenty of options in and near Troyes, including: Museum of Modern Art, Pharmacy Museum, Maison de l’Outil et de la Pensée Ouvrière and Saint-Loup Museum. Another interesting and attractive option is the museum of the painter Renoir. You’ll find one of his former studios together with a modern museum in the southern town of Essoyes.
