Maturation

This is a crucial stage before the harvest. In order to determine when to harvest, the winegrower must ensure the quality, the sugar and acidity levels of the grapes.

Come and learn about this stage in the making of champagne:

Lifting / Trellising

Between May and June, the winegrowers are busy in the vineyards. To ensure the growth of the branches and the grapes, they must first make sure that the vines stay in their place and grow vertically (the lifting), then a little later, they remove and "arrange" the vines on the wires (the trellising).

Come and learn how to work with the vines:

Not to be missed : the harvest

The experience within the experience! In September, the Champagne region is in turmoil. More than 100,000 grape pickers are busy in the vineyards harvesting the grapes, 100% by hand.

Come and try this unique experience of harvesting "the old-fashioned way".
