The 39th Assembly of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, held in Bonn Germany on 4 July 2015, saw the Champagne Slopes, Houses and Cellars inscribed on Unesco’s World Heritage List.
The announcement marked the crowning achievement of some eight years of hard work, endorsing Champagne’s candidacy for inclusion as a site of outstanding value to humanity. The Champagne vineyard cultural landscape, henceforth enjoys World Heritage status — a designation awarded on the same day to the climats of Burgundy Les climats de Bourgogne.
