A TRIBUTE TO THE TERROIR
A JOURNEY IN THE SECRETS OF VINE HUSBANDRY
The Cogevi’s extensive heritage collection (over 1,500 objects: tools, posters, postcards, photos, etc.) is exhibited in an innovative display. This helps visitors to understand the various trades involved in making champagne, how techniques have changed over the centuries, and all the complex expertise of a corporation of passionate artisans.
The museum overlooks the vines, and the tour continues outside along a marked path with illustrations, explaining
how the vineyard changes over the seasons. This walk leads to the foot of the vents (ventilation chimneys for the
underground cellars) in front of a stunningly beautiful panorama.
