Montagne de Reims Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
A number of roads, winding between villages and vineyards, criss-cross this hill between Reims and Epernay. Rilly-la-Montagne, a prosperous town that is home to numerous wine-growers and merchants, is also the starting point for walks to the slopes of Mont Joli. Two unexpected sights await in Verzenay: a windmill and a lighthouse. The latter now houses an engaging Wine Museum and also commands a sweeping view over a sea of vines. The Flamboyant-fronted church of Avenay-Val-d'Or and the little town of Ay, which has cultivated the vine since Gallo-Roman times, are both well worth a short visit, as is Hautvilliers, a village which has retained its old houses with their basket-handled doorways and wrought-iron signs. Venture inside the abbey church and admire the chancel adorned with carved oak panels and late-18C stalls. If you can, make time to visit Coulomnes-la-Montagne, with its lovely Romanesque church, and the St-Lié Chapel, hidden in a little spinney of trees near Ville-Dommange. The hillock provides a fine view of Reims and the plain.
