2CV discovery of the Champagne vineyards

Reims is nice. Épernay as well.

But you have not seen Champagne without a trip to the vineyards around these cities.

You can even do it in the most French of ways and enjoy a ride in a 2CV, one of the most classic French cars imaginable, I believe.

L'Allure Champenoise suggest several tours in Reims, the vineyards or to Hautvillers, where the most famous of Champagnes cellar masters, Dom Perignon, was brought at first to try to get rid of the bubbles.

Eventually they became fashionable and ever since everybody has worked to refine these pockets of carbondioxyde that has become the worldwidely known speciality of the region.

It is all out there to discover.
