The House of G.H. Martel
Tours of the “Crayères” cellars
Discover an ancestral expertis
While preserving its intimate, family atmosphere, the House is now opening its beautiful medieval chalk cellars, hollowed out between the 4th and 15th Centuries, its Champagne Eco-museum and 18th Century buildings to the public.
After the showing of a presentation film, “Champagne”, which consists of an introduction to the wine estate and its production techniques, you will find, in the cool cellars hollowed out by man, a unique collection of machines and tools from the Champagne region that were used for planting and maintaining the slopes right up to harvesting: silent witnesses of an ancestral expertise.
You’ll then see the vinification tools and equipment that will be used in making our wines.
As you follow this discovery circuit, you can admire our Gallo-Roman “crayères”, chalk cellars that go down to a depth of up to 22 metres.
