En-route in Champagne
Champagne is a wonderful region to explore on a leisurely cycling holiday. There are more than 15,000 winegrowers cultivating the land, 5,000 small champagne producers, over 100 well-known Houses, 319 villages, 3 grape varieties, (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier), 17 Grand Cru and 41 Premier Cru parcels of land in the AOC vineyards of champagne.
This is a trip for those who have a reasonable level of fitness. To make the best champagnes, the grapes have to be grown on slopes, so be prepared for some hills along the way! Santé et bonne route!
