Champagne in March

A couple of years ago we went to the Champagne region to celebrate husband's birthday. Champagne is just a short drive from Luxembourg so we should go there more often. We stayed outside Reims at Château de Barive which is a lovely castle at the countryside.

You will find many of the big Champagne houses in Reims and it is absolutely worth a visit. We picked out Pommery as our "tourist destination" which is set on an amazing property and has an interesting history.

the cave where they place the consignment to Norway
every where around the cellar you'll find huge artwork hacked in to the stone walls

But frankly we prefer to visit the tiny villages between Épernay and Reims and taste and buy from the smaller Champagne houses. 
Hope to go back in near future.
