Full description

Take a day trip from Paris to Champagne and Epernay. Visit 2 Champagne houses, a large one like Ayala or Moët and a family-run one, with at least 6 tastings included. Explore the vineyards and meet professional winemakers who will guide you through the tastings.

From Paris, drive to the charming village of Hautvillers, the cradle of Champagne. Admire the sea of vines which engulf the hillside slopes, and stop at a traditional bakery in the village. Discover a piece of history at Hautvillers Abbey, the resting place of monk and cellar master Dom Pérignon. Then, it's time to taste some bubbles at the AYALA Champagne House in Aÿ with its UNESCO-classified vineyard, Boizel, or Moët et Chandon headquarters and cellars in Epernay, depending on availability. Learn how to pay close attention to nuances in the Champagne flavor, aroma, and appearance. Next, take a stroll on Champagne Avenue in Epernay which is lined with the prestigious houses of Moët et Chandon, Laurent Perrier, Boizel, Venoge, and Castellane. Head to a traditional restaurant with a large choice of menus (at your expense). During the spring and summer, you can order a picnic. Visit a family of passionate champagne producers such as Champagne Bouquet in Châtillon-sur-Marne, Roger-Constant-Lemaire in Villers-sous-Châtillon, or Liébart-Regnier in Baslieux-sous-Châtillon. See how they continue the family tradition of producing top-shelf Champagne.

After another round of tasting, start your return journey to Paris.
