Sold to the municipality in 1987
The municipality of Verzenay holds a unique 82 ft terrestrial lighthouse (25 m) immersed in the middle of the vineyards. Among the first buildings made from reinforced concrete in the region and visible from afar, it was partially destroyed during both world wars, as it served as an observation post. The lighthouse was sold to the municipality of Verzenay in 1987 by its former owner, the G.H. Mumm champagne group. The name of its creator, Joseph Goulet, which appeared on its surface, was erased during renovations between 1994 and 1999. An eco-museum dedicated to the vines was also created next to the lighthouse. It aims to exhibit the characteristics of the Champagne terroirs through a significant collection.
