The province celebrates 2017 as the year of Renoir, paying tribute to this painter whose art, technique and determination still fascinate today. On June 3, the family home of one of the most illustrious painters of France will be inaugurated. A long and vast project that took two years to construct will allow visitors to discover the artist in his intimate surroundings.
2nd Edition of the "Séjour des Réconciliations" -From Thursday 22 to Sunday 25 June 2017
Every year, the Mission Coteaux, Maisons and Caves de Champagne organizes the "Stay of Reconciliations" to celebrate the inscription on the World Heritage List of Champagne. This major hospitality event is organized in the emblematic sites of the zone of commitment, which includes the 320 villages and towns of the historic wine-growing region selected by UNESCO.
The symbolic value of Champagne, the wine of celebration, reconciliation, happiness and peace, gives the inscription of the Coteaux, Maisons and Caves de Champagne a special dimension that goes beyond the mere ambition of preserving a Well, be it exceptional.
This year 4 highlights will punctuate the Stay of the Reconciliations:
- a gala dinner
- simultaneous and shared lantern releases worldwide
- a walk embellished with cultural and heritage discoveries around Champagne from the village of Riceys
