Uncorking a bottle of Champagne has long marked the pinnacle of celebration, but the eponymous province of northeast France is itself worth celebrating. The birthplace of sparkling white wine isn’t the only identity of the Champagne region—among its vineyards, cellars, and Champagne maisons are historic WWI sites, the lush forests of the Montagne de Reims, and striking Gothic churches. Because Champagne really does pair well with everything, the cuisine is as delicious and diverse as the gorgeous riding.
