A Meridonial Village 

Torgny lives in a proven microclimate. A small southern village of the Lorraine region, leaning against a hillside, is protected from the northern breezes by the forest massif that borders it. The result is one of the mildest climates allowing the cultivation of vines today: “Le Poirier du Loup“, “Les Fouchères” and “L’épinette” are three vineyards whose production is directly inspired by the south. This south never ceases to overflow from the locals’ hearts and sings in the colours of the village houses. The stone buildings have warm colours, and the roofs have red Roman tiles.

As you walk down the sloping streets that converge on the Chiers, you first come across a small listed heritage: a religious niche, a washhouse and two traditional farms. Next, the Raymond Mayné nature reserve, one of the oldest in Belgium, comes into view. This ancient quarry is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. From here, there are beautiful views of the surrounding French and Belgian landscapes. Every year in July, “La Foire Artisanale de Torgny” (artisanal fair) brings together artists and craftsmen from the region to discover the flavours of the land.
