Moët & Chandon invites you to visit its wine cellars, the largest in the Champagne region. Discover endless underground galleries, filled with history, and round off your visit with a tasting of champagne!
The wine cellars of Moët & Chandon are located under the Avenue de Champagne in Epernay. They are an exceptional part of the company’s heritage, and offer a unique chance to witness several centuries of champagne production. This treasure trove, the largest network of underground wine cellars in the Champagne region, preserves the memory of the talent and work of generations. Enter the 28 km of underground tunnels, the oldest of which dates back to the foundation of the company in 1743.
Dug from the colossal white chalk stone of the Champagne region, the tunnels spread across several levels under the city and provide the coolness and humidity necessary for the slow maturing of the famous bubbles. It’s in the calm of these underground cellars that Moët & Chandon champagnes develop their unique style, which is full, generous and dynamic in character.

Magical receptions in a sumptuous setting
