Warmth and hospitality run through the blood of Vincelles vintners.
Champagne H.BLIN is proud to continue this long-standing tradition, creating special reception and tasting areas for our visitors and clients.
The reception cellar
Not only can you discover and taste H.BLIN’s full product range, but you’ll also learn about the history of the cooperative and the various steps in the champagne production process. There is also a parcel featuring all seven grape varieties used in champagne at the welcome centre. Don’t miss the opportunity to rediscover our heritage varieties.
The wine vault
With an astonishing collection of old vintages (from 1982 onwards), we can offer our clients a selection of truly exceptional bottles. We keep a stock of some 10,000 bottles, and these bear witness to the flavours, aromas and character of our wines from decades gone by. Some vintages are available to buy, while others are for tasting only.
Every year, at the beginning of December, we hold an open day as part of the “Ronde des Caves” cellar tour (9 cooperative cellars from various winemaking regions are present, plus several local food producers). It’s a great opportunity to come and discover our whole range of excellent champagne and have fun in the run-up to Christmas.
The reception and tasting area
Located among the vines, this space is also open to our clients (by appointment only). Sitting atop the hills of Vincelles, this open-air space overlooks the Marne Valley and gives you an opportunity to discover fifteen villages while enjoying our champagnes paired with delicious food. It’s simply wonderful to enjoy some fine food and drink out in the country, getting back to the true Champagne values of friendship and authenticity.
