“The name brings up memories of special occasions, but you'll also be wanting to try some champagne when you're in Champagne! But there's plenty of something for everyone, too, in this traditional region of France. You can take in the countryside views, enjoy the food, and there are plenty of activities, of course! A trip to be cherished."

The picturesque, undulating Champagne region located in North Eastern France is best known as the home of the eponymous sparkling white wine. The unique process of introducing tiny bubbles into the region's wines was reputedly developed by none other than Dom Pérignon, a 17th century Benedictine monk and monastery cellar master.
