The mounts around Verzenay
The village of Verzenay, in the Marne department, is situated at the bottom of a valley dominated to the southeast by Mount Rizan (213 metres) and to the northwest by Mount Bœuf (216 metres). The windmill of Mont-Bœuf (photo) dates from 1820. After the death of the last miller in 1903, and according to his wishes, the mill mechanism was blocked. The mill built on Mount Rizan operated until 1859. It was bought in 1909 by a Champagne merchant who had an advertising lighthouse built in its place. Nearly 500 hectares of plots of vine planted with Pinot Noir grow on the slopes of the two mounts, whose orientation and soil composition are optimal.
