Following the listing of the landscapes of Champagne as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015, the Community of Communes of the Grande Vallée de la Marne wanted to offer an original and interpretative experience of the Champagne vineyards.
Thus was born Panoramic Tour, a set of eight thematic points of view highlighting the singularity of the landscapes and the development of the king of wines.
