Aperçu du contexte en quelques images et détails pratiques :

Voici quelques photos pour vous donner une idée des paysages et point de vue entre vignoble de Champagne et la forêt :

Après la montée venant du village deux possibilités en forme de Y et une entrée dans la forêt pour aller prendre une toute petite partie du GR142

La balade est ouverte à tous ceux qui respectent les consignes de ce type de rando : chiens en laisse, respect de l’environnement, esprit de partage.

Il y aura plein de chiens lévriers et leurs copains, des membres du Champagne Damien-Buffet et de  l’association Soligalgos, entre vignes de Sacy et forêt du Parc Naturel Régional de la Montagne de Reims.

Bien sûr les marcheurs avec ou sans chien sont aussi les bienvenus, avis aux amateurs ! 🙂

Plus de détails sur le circuit de balade :

Configuration du circuit :

Le circuit est prévu entre vignes et forêt. Il forme une partie en boucle avec un aller retour dans la rue principale du village pour rejoindre le point de ralliement.

C’est accessible aux marcheurs amateurs en prenant son temps. La promenade comporte le dénivelé de la pente que vous voyez ci-dessus sur la photo prise de l’arrivée au village (altitude moyenne de 174 m).

La rando est accessible à tous, sauf aux fauteuils handicapés et difficile pour les poussettes, vu le dénivelé et qu’une partie est sur des chemins de vignes pas empierrés

La traversée du village vous permet de découvrir le lavoir et l’église romane classée monument historique.

Les chemins sont pour une part des chemins de vignes où les marcheurs sont acceptés s’ils respectent l’environnement et n’abîment pas les vignes et gardent les chiens tenus en laisse tout le temps.

Voici une vue du dessus : Sacy est le village du milieu, la masse sombre est le parc naturel régional, les zones, avant le village, sont les champs qui sont cultivés en céréales, entre Reims-Bezannes et Sacy, le village sur le bas de la photo à droite est Ecueil et celui sur le haut de la photo est Villedommange.

Belle allée forestière mais là aussi chiens en laisse pour la partie qui recoupe une petite partie du chemin de grande randonnée du PNR, le GR142. .

Le point de vue est magnifique vu d’en haut et vous pouvez voir plus largement que sur cette photo. Celle ci vous montre le focus vers le dessus du village de Sacy en biais venant de la forêt

La boucle touristique correspond environ à 1h15 à 1h30 de marche suivant si vous marchez d’un bon pas ou prenez votre temps pour admirer le paysage et la vue bien dégagée la plupart du temps.

Le vignoble de Sacy est classé premier cru de Champagne et s’étire entre deux autres villages, Villedommange et Ecueil.

Horaires de la rencontre :

  • Départ de la balade : 14h30 de Sacy soit du quai de débarquement de la coopérative qui est à l’entrée du village sur la droite de la route au niveau du panneau d’entrée de village, soit du hangar, qui devrait être terminé d’ici la date de la rencontre, qui est à gauche de la route d’accès venant de Reims. Pour ceux qui ne savent pas et sont champenois, vous pouvez entre temps aller vous rendre compte en visite à l’exploitation familiale du Champagne Damien-Buffet au 12 rue de Châtillon qui est la rue principale entre l’entrée du village venant de Reims et la place du village.

Greyhounds thematic choice for our caps of champagnes Damien-Buffet

WHY WE HAVE CHOSEN GREYHOUNDS DOGS FOR OUR CHAMPAGNES CAPS

The idea and the wish to highlight dogs breeds for our new thematic for caps of Champagne Damien-Buffet, with dogs europeans lévriers (whippets, galgos, greyhounds, italian greyhound, deerhounds..) came obvious at our mind.


Those breeds of greyhounds dogs are really present and shown, close to kings and their court, on heraldry, and also near greatfull ladies of Belle Epoque, on the Art Déco posters or other documents through centuries and in many countries of the world and naturally in the world of Art, on paintings,  tapestries.


We can see the greyhounds presents during huntings, or escorting their owners, loving at the same time horses and dogs, able to follow them and share in symbiosis.
Likewise, whippets and galgos, when they are used and well treated for the pleasure for competition and training in team greyhounds/humans, for beauty dogs dogs show or race tracks, are beautiful and show  the symbiosis between human and best friend, the dog.

Those dogs are part of french and european History and also far from there in Arabia, in Asia, in Russia. Those breeds and those dogs deserve to be highlighted at the release of the sparkling wine bubbles for the champagne, wine of the kings and king of the wines.


For those reasons, and Reims being in the heart of Champagne region, and city who were crown many kings of France in the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Reims, this thematic about greyhounds appeared to be a good choice. We hope all the wine and champagne lovers will like it.

PS : A great thank you to the association Soligalgos who take part of historical reconstruction during fêtes johanniques in Reims, here photos taken around the Cathedral.

For this new thematic collection for our caps of champagnes shall be funny and create a positive dynamic and exchanges, we organized a photos contest. We have been very happy of the interest for this photos contest gam and the positive comments since the prices have been awarded by drawing lots for the winners.

Some whippets, galgos, greyhounds help us with their photos. Like that their heads appear on this collection dedicated to  distinguished, elegants, fizzy, sparkling, like our cuvees of champagnes. We’ll have 12 caps from dogs coming from 5 europeans countries.

For those who didn’t saw the photos album of the dogs who entered the photos contest game and between them those who’ll have their heads used for the collection of champagnes DAMIEN-BUFFET caps, here are the dogs and the design of the caps.

Click here to see the album of drawing lots choice and the caps who’ll soon cork a great part of our Damien-Buffet champagnes cuvees.

Click here to see the album of the heads of the greyhounds and the design of the caps chosen for our bottles of champagnes Damien-Buffet.


Availiable from now to Autumn 2017 on most of our cuvees, bottles of champagnes DAMIEN-BUFFET, this collection of caps will be offered and handed to all the participants of the photos contest game, at the occasion of Global #ChampagneDay on 20/10/2017, welcoming at the winery 12 Châtillon’s street, 51500 Sacy, France.
