The Droners


The village of Chavot is located on a hillside in the Champagne vineyards, a few kilometers from Epernay.
The site has been inhabited since Neolithic times. Polished stone axes have been found on the tip of the Chavot plateau.
The Romanesque church dates back to the 12th century. It overlooks the Cubry valley and stands on the motte of the ancient castle to which it was attached. Unfortunately, over the centuries, the church of Saint Martin in Chavot-Courcourt has suffered many partial deteriorations.
Seemingly lost in the middle of the Champagne vineyards, which stretch as far as the eye can see, the church of Chavot is well worth a visit, day or night.

Vue sur la commune de Grauves - Epernay Tourisme
Municipality of Grauves

Chemin des Patis, Grauves

Grauves is a pretty commune, with exceptionally steep hillsides, which is why they’re called “cliffs”. These cliffs encircle two hundred hectares of vineyards, allowing you to admire the scenery from the other communes where walkers and hang-gliders can be found. Other life forms have been discovered thanks to marine shell fossils. Interestingly, around 45 million years ago, La Champagne was actually a tropical beach, inhabited by Campaniles giganteum, giant snails equivalent to over 40 cm in length!

A few kilometers from Epernay lies a very pretty, little-visited valley. It’s a delightful village with its nest of greenery and its many springs! Moslins, whose name appears in texts dating back to 1157, owes its name to the presence of numerous mills in ancient times. That’s why this commune is interesting not only for its charming surroundings, but also for its historical memories.

commune of Moussy

Moussy (Loge de vignes - La Table)

Created on the initiative of 13 winegrowers from the village, this all-wooden table lodge is ideal for family picnics and large convivial gatherings, just like the banquets of yesteryear.

This four-portal structure, which supports the benches and table, allows for observation of different horizons, offering photophiles a remarkable interplay of planes and fields. There’s no point in trying to sit down at the end of this table, it jumps into the void like a diving board into a sea of vines!
