Information 2023 -Comité Champagne



The Champagne region is located between 49 and 49,5 degrees northern latitude. From 50 degrees and up, it is generally considered difficult to obtain quality grapes, so the Champagne vineyards are located right on the borderline. That means a challenging climate for the champagne grapes!

There is a dual climate; both a continental and an oceanic climate. The oceanic climate ensures sufficient rain and little temperature contrasts.

Sometimes, heavy hailstorms take place, which can cause severe damage to both vines and grapes.


Characteristics of a continental climate are, for example, harsh frost periods in the winter months and in spring. This can severely damage vines and grapes that bud early.

In recent years, the average temperature in Champagne has risen. As a result, more and more millésimés are being produced.

The terroir in Champagne is also playing an increasingly important role. Here, you can find more information about this.

The capital of Champagne


The main cities in the Champagne region are Épernay and Reims. Épernay, with the famous Avenue de Champagne, where many famous champagne houses are located, is beautifully surrounded by vineyards.

For many centuries, French kings have been crowned in Reims. You can also finds the 'crayères' here, the huge chalk quarries.

Both cities present themselves more or less as the capital of champagne/Champagne and both of them, like so many picturesque villages, are absolutely worth a visit!

Since 2015, 'the Champagne Hillsides, Houses and Cellars' are part of UNESCO World Heritage. This heritage consists of three distinctive parts: The historic vineyards of Hautvillers, Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Saint-Nicaise Hill in Reims, and the Avenue de Champagne and Fort Chabrol in Épernay.
