REIMS CATHEDRAL CELEBRATES it's 800th ANNIVERSARY by Philip S. Kampe

Since the beginning of THE WINE HUBS existence, on the home page, one could and can still find the weather conditions in REIMS. It is one of those things that stays in one's head when they enter the WINE HUBS World.
Fittingly so, I must write a short piece on the REIMS CATHEDRAL. The Notre-Dame Cathedral of Reims, historic coronation site for French Kings, located in the Champagne region of France, celebrates it's 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 for Kings.

To mark the 800th Anniversary, Champagne houses and wineries have committed to restoring the facade of the cathedral.

To celebrate, the town of REIMS has planned a seies of celebrations through mid-October of this year to celebrate the cathedral, including concerts, exhibitions and a spectacular daily light show.
It is time for us to CELEBRATE the Cathedral in Reims by drinking the "Beverage of Kings"---CHAMPAGNE--
