Champagne Arrangements

Of course it is impossible to discuss all 1.500 Champagne houses of the Côte des Bar. In total there are more than 7.500 hectares of vineyards in the area (about one-third of the total Champagne areal). A fundamental difference between the Côte des Bar and the 150km more northern Reims and Epernay area, is that the Côte des Bar produces a softer and fruity Champagne. The very well known Champagne houses from the north blend the grapes from the Côte des Bar in their Champagne, to give their Champagne a more balanced taste..

Another very specific element from the Côte des Bar is that the Champagne houses from the south are all independant, and work less as subcontractor for the large commercial houses in the north. The fact that there are so many independant professionals in the south, has as effect that competition is higher and therefore do they have to be better, more innovative, more creative,... The end result is that you will find the best Champagnes in the Côte des Bar. Therefore 'passionate professionals'.

Our selection of Champagnehouses


It is of course impossible to visit all Champagne houses in 1 weekend. We based our choice entirely on feedback we received from the hundreds of guests who stayed at Château des Tertres in the last decade. So it is a list that lives and is adjusted based on your feedback ☺.

The criteria used were initially; the quality of the proposed products; the reception of our guests; the simplicity of winemakers. We let you discover authentic and traditional Champagne houses in the "Côte des Bar" area. You will be able to taste top quality produced by both very small winemakers and very long-established values. They let you enjoy the different grape varieties, soils and Champagne methods in our region. Moreover, you can admire the beautiful nature, forests, valleys and vineyards during the trips to every Champagne house.

We wish you a wonderful experience with each of them!

Champagne Gremillet

The Champagne house Gremillet is one of the largest in the region. It is young and dynamic in character (bursting with vitality) but still family run.

Beautiful discoveries await you; Le Clos Rocher (rare in Champagne), an authentic "Cadole" and the arboretum as well as the tasting with an exceptionally beautiful view of the vineyards. The tradition is still present with a passion for entrepreneurship.
