70 years, that's something to celebrate!
On Saturday, May 20, 2023, come and celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Champagne Tourist Route around the Champagne Banquets!
Born from a collective will, this event is a great opportunity for gastronomy and conviviality.
Program of Les Banquets of Champagne
In concrete terms, you will be able to participate in one of the 6 Banquets of Champagne set up in the heart of the vineyards, in the different terroirs of Champagne. Come and sit at one of the large tables set up for the occasion! Each banquet will accommodate between 100 and 200 people. The menus, based on local products, will be provided by local caterers in order to be part of a sustainable approach. Environmental awareness animations will also punctuate this country day.
It’s up to you where you want to live this exceptional festive experience! From Epernay, the closest meeting point will be the Coteaux Sud d’Epernay, a multi-faceted vineyard where the vines invite themselves into the gardens, right up to the doors of the houses.

Gastronomy & conviviality !
The Massif de Saint-Thierry, in the Marne, is also worth a visit. Just like the Côte des Bar in the Aube, which cultivates an identity all in fruit and greed thanks to the Pinot Noir, or the West Marne Valley in the Aisne, an intimate vineyard that seems to extend to infinity.
You can also choose to go off the beaten track by opting for the Coteaux du Sézannais and Petit Morin banquet, whose charming landscape evolves between vineyards and marshes, or the Coteaux Vitryats, the smallest terroir in Champagne, which is distinguished by its exotic accents.

- Welcome from 12:00 for the flute of friendship or the champagne aperitif, lunch served at 13:00.
