History of the Town of Epernay
The town of Epernay is situated in the Marne department within the Grand Est region, formerly known as Champagne-Ardenne. Epernay is often heralded as the ‘Capital of Champagne’ owing to its significant role in the champagne industry. Its history stretches back to the Gallo-Roman era, and the first recorded mention of the town’s name appears in documents from the fifth century. The development and export of wine, specifically champagne, have been intrinsically linked to the history and economic growth of the village.
Tourism and Visits to Epernay
Epernay offers a myriad of attractions that make it a popular destination for tourists. One significant landmark is the Church of Notre Dame, which has undergone several restorations due to damage sustained from bombings during past conflicts. The church boasts an array of art pieces including beautiful stained-glass windows from the Renaissance era, two classified paintings, and various sculptures. Additionally, visitors can admire the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organs housed within the church.
Beyond religious sites, the Museum of Archaeology and Champagne in Epernay, established in 1893, is a must-visit. In the archaeology section, the museum features approximately 80,000 regional artifacts, while the wine section showcases around 4,000 items that document the history of champagne. The museum occasionally hosts special exhibits that are open to the public.
