France Passion Verneuil Champagne Jacques Copin

France Passion Verneuil is hosted by an independent winemaker, Champagne Jacques Copin. Members can stay here for one night free of charge in a campervan or motorhome. Additional facilities are available for paying customers. Tasting of Champagne and Ratafia is free of charge.

Location:

France Passion Verneuil is located in the Marne department of France. Not to be confused with Verneuil in Normandy where the Hundred Years war was fought. Although, the battle of the Marne meant the village was heavily bombed during World War I. Little evidence of this bombing exists today and the village is an important stop on the Champagne Tourist Route with 238 farmers producing grapes.
