A TRIP TO THE CÔTE DES BAR
The Côte des Bar is one of the five main wine regions of Champagne. It is located in the southernmost part, south of the city of Troyes, between Bar-sur-Seine and Bar-sur-Aube, which gave the region its name.
This territory spans 8,000 hectares of vineyards, alternating with forests, hilly topography, villages and a multitude of rivers. Its character is both very authentic and extremely natural (see www.tourisme-cotedesbar.com, in French). And in the heart of that region lies the Arce Valley, the terroir of the Chassenay d’Arce brand and our winemakers.
DISCOVER OUR HOUSE
At Chassenay d’Arce, our wine tourism offerings are designed for any lovers of fine dining, culture and, of course, champagne.
It all starts with a fun tour of the 19th century cellars and “Secrets of Winemaking,” an educational exhibit that explains all of the work of a winemaker in Champagne, from the grapevine to the bottle.
Here, you can learn about all of the blending and vinification techniques that are specific to the world of champagne, concluding with a tasting of our products.
Naturally, at the end of your tour, you will have the opportunity to buy all of our products from our shop.
We offer a variety of packages that mix and match education,
tastings, fine dining and culture:
