Comment: Romigny is located in the outskirts of the Champagne appellation, so some of the neighbouring villages visible on the map are not included in the list above, since they are outside the appellation and therefore will not be profiled.
Romigny is located on the right bank of the Marne river, but the village itself is more appropriately described as located on the Montagne de Reims hill. The UMC (which I follow with respect to the areas and sub-regions) does however count it to the area Vallée de la Marne Rive Droite rather than to the area Vesle et Ardre, probably because the location of the vineyards in the southern apex of the commune.
The Romigny commune covers 1135 hectares and has 200 inhabitants (as of 2012).
The vineyards in Romigny are located in the southern apex of the commune, in a block that also includes the vineyards of Olizy and Jonquery. They consist of mild south-facing slopes with Pinot Meunier as the dominant grape variety.

Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was also 8 ha. There are 3 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.
