The Notre-Dame Cathedral of Reims, historic coronation site for French kings located in the Champagne region of France, celebrates its 800th anniversary this year. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, the Reims Cathedral welcomed generations of French monarchs and nobility. Wines from the Champagne region were historically served at the royal banquets that accompanied coronations, contributing to Champagne’s reputation as a luxurious beverage. “The Reims Cathedral is a stunning showcase of the Champagne region’s history and beauty,” said Sam Heitner, director of the Champagne Bureau, the U.S. representative of the Comit Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne CIVC. The town of Reims has planned a series of celebrations through mid-October of this year to celebrate the cathedral, including concerts, exhibitions and a spectacular daily light show.Link: Segment-1 Audio-Blog;
