Hôtel Particulier Auban-Moët

The building of this stately home in Epernay was commissioned c.1858 under the direction of architect Victor Lenoir, who also designed the Gare Montparnasse in Paris. In 1920 it became the Town Hall of Epernay.

The "Auban-Moët Hôtel Particulier" (mansion) now forms part of the Champagne Hillsides, Houses and Cellars included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The building interior features antique decor, highlighted in the great hall and along the monumental staircase by stained glass windows depicting bunches of grapes and vine leaves spilling out of vases (the work of French Master Glazer Louis-Charles-Marie Champigneulle).

The large stained glass window on the hall ceiling, together with the windows above and overlooking the monumental staircase are characteristic of Louis XIV style. Their central floral motifs representing bunches of grapes serve as reminders of the property’s viticultural roots
