Épernay is best known as the principal "entrepôt" for champagne wines, which are bottled and kept in large cellars built into the chalk rock on which the town is built. The production of the equipment and raw materials used in the champagne industry is a major source of local employment.
Brewing and sugar refinery and the production of hats and caps, are also major industries.

Composição muito caprichada, com luz bem balanceada e cores naturais. O enquadramento é muito bom, pois vai além de mostrar simplesmente uma igreja ao incluir as pessoas e o agradável restaurante à beira da rua. Um lugarzinho charmoso e agradável onde certamente eu gostaria de estar para tomar um bom vinho da casa.
