Spend the day in the beautiful countryside of the Champagne region visiting Champagne Houses and tasting a variety of different Champagnes. Go to Epernay, Hautvilliers, and the Marne Valley, meet Champagne producers, and feast on a Champagne lunch.
What to Expect
Discover the world of Champagne on this full-day tour of the Champagne Houses from Paris. Whether you are a Champagne fan, or merely want to spend the day in lovely countryside, it is the ideal tour for a day away from the bustle of the city.
Following a hotel pick-up, travel by minivan for the short drive to the exquisite vineyards of Champagne at Epernay. Visit one of the most famous Champagne Houses and tour the amazing underground chalk cellars to learn how Champagne is made, from the grape to your flute. Wrap up your visit with a glass of Champagne!
Next you will go to the lovely village of Hautvilliers to visit the Abbey where Pierre Perignon - better known as Dom Perignon - created what we know today as Champagne.
Your 3rd stop of the day is at a small boutique winery, one of those Champagne growers that produce quality Champagne at a value price. Meet one of the people in charge at the Champagne House and taste several different Champagnes during a traditional French lunch overlooking the lovely Marne Valley.
After lunch, visit a small boutique winery in the Premier Cru area. This will be your last Champagne tasting of the day. Hop back on the minibus and head back to Paris. Sit back and relax; at this point, many clients drift into sleep, for some reason!
Back in Paris, you will be dropped off at a centrally located wine bar where you will be offered a glass of Champagne; just to set you on your way…
