Champagne Dom Caudron: At the heart of the Marne Valley, in PASSY-GRIGNY, The Confidences de Dom Caudron reveal their secrets. A paradise for wine tourism.
This is the Abbot Caudron, Epicurean champagne lover, who offered 1,000 francs in 1929 for wine growers of Passy-Grigny so they base their cooperative and value their grapes. Their field is now 130 hectares and helps put together a champagne revealing the richness of this terroir, through a blend of high quality.
In addition to this quality research The Confidences de Dom Caudron offer many activities for wine tourism: tastings, tours, video, museum and animation(Coordonnées).
