Weekend in Champagne
Clouds have gathered over Champagne when we enter the region across the last hill, separating wheat fields from vineyards. It is a warm, yet gray June afternoon when we arrive at the heart of the Champagne region – Epernay. A captivating, yet classical French gate awaits us at the residence of Champagne De Venoge, located on the most expensive avenue in the world - Avenue de Champagne (Nr 33 is their address). They have not been here for long, only since 2015. We glance through the car window at the breathtaking estate ahead of us as we turn left to park the car, just next to their well-known guest house - Le Suites du 33. It is not a hotel. On the contrary – it is a small, intimate, discreet, charming, and luxurious guest house just next to the main building and opposite a champagne bar where champagne is to be enjoyed.
