The Champagne locale of France is under 100 miles east of Paris and is comprised of the Aube, Marne, Haute-Marne, and Ardennes areas and is generally well known for the sparkling white wine that bears a comparative name. This wine district is one of the coldest of France and produces both white and rosé champagne.
The viticultural zone of Champagne covers 76,000 acres of land where there are vineyards, with 319 towns that are home to 5,000 creators who make their own wine and 14,000 makers who sell grapes.
The area is known for its high elevation and low temperature, which makes a difficult space for grapes. In any case, woods in the area help settle temperature and hold soil moisture. The grape sharpness that results from this condition is perfect for sparkling wine, especially champagne.
