The Montagne de Reims is situated between Reims and Épernay; its natural and built heritage can be explored by following the Champagne Trail, which criss-crosses the region. The vineyards of Montagne de Reims are situated between the wooded massif of the Reims Mountain Regional Natural Park and the agricultural plain.
The world’s only reserve of dwarf beeches, known as the "Faux de Verzy", exemplifies the uniqueness of this area covered in forest. The landscape with winegrowing villages nestled among the vines, extends towards Reims with a green corridor that runs along the Canal de l'Aisne à la Marne.
In the hills above Reims, the Champagne cellars of Colline Saint-Nicaise, for whom an application has been submitted for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List, stock thousands of bottles of Champagne.
This particular area has microclimates suitable for growing the three main grape varieties that are permitted in the Champagne region.
