130km northeast of Paris, Épernay is situated on the left bank of the Marne River, in the Champagne region of north-eastern France. With a population of about 25,000, Épernay is one of the smaller communes in this champagne-producing region. Épernay was under episcopalian rule for much of its history, with bishops governing from the 5th to the 10th century. The commune has also been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt over the centuries.
Épernay was a casualty of the Hundred Years’ War, was burned down in 1544, and in 1592 Henry of Navarre laid siege to the town. It has since spread to the right bank of the Marne River, which is close to the Kyriad Épernay hotel. The areas surrounding Épernay are also known for their wine production. The Champagne-Ardenne region of France produces hundreds of millions of bottles annually, more than a third of which are exported out of France.
