Woodworking, know-how in the heart of the vineyards

Discover another way to discover the vines through the interaction of wine and wood. Dive into the heart of a cooperage in Champagne and learn all about the importance of this exceptional craftsmanship. The owner of the cooperage welcomes you to help you discover his trade and his passion. An artisan cooper, grandson of a wheelwright and son of a cabinetmaker, who will offer you a tailor-made visit to enrich your knowledge of wine and its grape varieties.

A very private visit of the cooperage for about 1 hour and which is only possible by appointment: you will be able to taste a flute of Champagne from the best vintages patiently aged in oak barrels. Learn how to recognise the delicate imprint and freshness of the oak or lime tree provided by the barrel. A subtle blend with the fruity or floral aromas of the finest Crus of Champagnes.Let yourself be surprised by the quality of the barrels made from oak from the forests of Champagne-Ardenne, in particular the wood of the Montagne de Reims classified as an exceptional forest.

Peplum organises a unique visit to this artisanal house which makes nearly 1,500 barrels a year—an original way of discovering the Champagnes and the region’s artisanal know-how.
