On 4 July 2015, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee took the decision to include the "Champagne Slopes, Houses and Cellars" on its World Heritage list.
The Exceptional Universal Value of the Champagne vineyard cultural landscape, the birthplace of Champagne wine, has now been recognised…and in a broader sense, this includes all the work done to grow the grapes, produce and distribute Champagne wine which is passed down the generations and preserved in the 320 Champagne AOC districts located in the five French départements of Marne, Aube, Aisne, Haute-Marne and Seine-et-Marne.
Management of the Association 'Paysages du Champagne', founded in 2007 to provide a dynamic and unifying structure for all stakeholders throughout the Champagne AOC area, is shared equally by local authorities and professionals from the wine production industry.
The Comité Champagne is a founder member of the association and its steering committee.
