La Route du Champagne en fête

Fancy a festive, musical and gastronomic walk in the Champagne region? Every year, the champagne producers in the south invite visitors to discover their champagne and visit the cellars! Several wine villages are completely decorated to receive tens of thousands of champagne enthusiasts. Beside these visits to champagne houses and producers, many fun activities are organized. A unique festival to get to know the region!

In 2023 it will be the 26th time and this year the ‘Route du Champagne en fête’ will take place on 29 and 30 July in the Côte des Bar, Celles-sur-Ource, 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!

Champagne, gastronomy and culture

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!
