Situated in the heart of the Reims Mountain vineyards, the village of Hautvillers is the cradle of champagne. Indeed, it is here in the ancient Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers that the monk Dom Pérignon discovered the champagne wine-making process in the 18th century. Dom Pérignon's tomb rests today in the chancel of the Saint-Sindulphe abbey church. Hautvillers is also a charming wine-producing village with houses decorated with beautiful forged iron shop signs.

Saint-Pierre Abbey of Hautvillers: Founded about 650 by St Nivard, the Saint-Pierre Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers welcomes in 1668 a young Benedictine monk, Dom Pierre Perignon, aged 29 years. Prosecutor of the monastery, he manages his property for 47 years, until his death in 1715, the same month and at the same age as King Louis XIV. His tomb is located in the abbey church. Its careful management allows the renovation of the abbey, with, for example, the construction of Porte Sainte-Hélène and the cloister. Père Pérignon improves the quality of the wines produced by the abbey, thanks to his work on assembly. Sold to the suppliers of the Court, they will be appreciated by Louis XIV. The abbey was abandoned during the Revolution, but began to revive in 1823 when Pierre-Gabriel Chandon redeemed the properties.
