On 22 March, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, chairman of the Mission Unesco des Coteaux, Maisons et Caves de Champagne association, presented activities aimed at gaining exposure for the Unesco listing secured in July 2015. The key part of the programme is the third Reconciliation Visit, which will take place from June 18 to 24, 2018. Activities include a charity gala dinner on 18 June with actor Pierre Arditi as patron, a conference on “Reconciling man with nature” on 20 June, white picnics and lantern drops at several sites in Champagne on Saturday 23 June and finally the reconciliation march at Château-Thierry on Sunday 24 June.

Champagne is the wine of happiness

For three years, we have chosen the theme of reconciliation because it is close to Unesco's values, namely peace through culture and science," said Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger. “It is about reconciliation in the broad sense, with our loved ones, ourselves, nature and heritage, for instance. France and Germany were reconciled in 1962 in Champagne, in the cathedral of Reims, itself listed by UNESCO. These are important values for our region. Also, Champagne is the wine of happiness...". Last year, more than 10,000 people took part in the Reconciliation Visit.
