The grapes of Champagne are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. We went to a wine growing museum in Verzenay Champagne. It is important to understand viticulture or grape growing to further appreciate wine. The museum’s landmark is a lighthouse on top of a hill.  It is a very unusual location as there is no ocean, only an astounding view of vineyards classified as Grand Cru.   This edifice was converted to the Phare de Verzenay museum.   After the tour, we had a small picnic by the vineyards and visited a nearby small and independent wine producer.
