A BIT OF HISTORY
The former Pommery presses in Aÿ
The Pommery pressing center in Aÿ is an important part of the architectural and industrial heritage of the House of the same name, which experienced considerable growth at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.
At that time, Pommery imposed its style and adorned its architectural ensembles with singular colors: blue gray and brick red.
Built at the foot of the hillsides, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this building, at the heart of champagne production, remained for nearly a century a witness to the know-how of the winegrowing and winemaking professions, making it a symbolic place of intangible heritage.
