A lovely if steep climb through the vines brings us to the hilltop village of Hautvillers, famous as the home of Dom Perignon. It was here at the abbey he perfected the technique of champagne making that is still followed today although the English claim to have done it first! The village is also known for its old houses all adorned with wrought iron signs, 140 of them,advertising their trades.
