Welcome to Marne


Many producers prefer that visitors phone ahead but, if you haven’t, don’t be shy about knocking on the door. More and more young vignerons (winegrowers) speak English. Almost all producers are closed around the vendange (grape harvest, from late August to October), when bringing in the crop eclipses all other activities.
