What people are saying about Epernay

We had a very informative tour of the champagne house. It was supposed to be an hour visit but lasted longer. Aurore, our guide, was very gracious. I am not sure that we would have seen as much of the production process at a bigger house. We came out impressed. Aurore thoroughly explained the champagne method and bottling process and was able to answer all of our questions… and we had many! The tasting at the end was very enjoyable too. Merci beaucoup!

Marie, our guide was extremely kind, she was very educational with simple and complete explanations which allowed everyone to understand without feeling left out. The tasting was designed in a fun way which is a plus to end this activity. And let's not even talk about lunch, A DEAL.

The drive through the hills was beautiful. The guide's stories were very informative and enthusiastic. Sometimes we couldn't understand her. Especially if you sat at the back of the bus. The tasting was a very fun and tasty experience. We now know a lot more about champagne

A great time with passionate and pleasant people. Kindness and kindness. An interesting visit to discover a Champagne family with a fabulous estate. Not forgetting the meal which exceeded our expectations. A treat for the taste buds. THANK YOU
