Full description

Discover first-hand what makes France's sparkling wines so special when you swap Paris for the famous Champagne region. This day trip visits 3 Champagne houses, famous sights and villages and stops for an authentic French lunch with Champagne.

A luxury van will collect you from your hotel or a central Paris meeting point and whisk you out to the countryside. Yes, today is an early start but expect a bag of fresh croissants to enjoy while your guide shares insights into the sparkling world of Champagne.

The first stop will be a prestigious and world-famous Champagne estate (depending on availability it could be Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Mercier, Taittinger etc). A guided tour explores huge galleries filled with Champagne bottles, finishing with a Champagne tasting.

Next stop is a masterclass led by your expert guide in the heart of a vineyard. Surrounded by vines and gorgeous views learn the basics of professional wine tasting and practice with a special blended cuvée.

By now it's time for lunch at a family-run Champagne house or a local restaurant. Enjoy traditional French fare while tasting several glasses of Champagne and ratafias (another local wine).

Digest lunch while touring a vineyard of the Côte des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne. Learn the characteristics of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier while soaking in breathtaking views.

Between vineyards get to know Hautvillers, a charming French village known as the historic birthplace of Champagne and home of the legendary Dom Perignon.

Finally, pull up at another family-run winery where you will learn how to sabre a champagne bottle and taste several delicious Champagnes before heading back to Paris.

Simone was a great and enthusiastic guide for our day trip. He provided many details on our drive out and took care of us to ensure we were where we needed to be for all of our tastings. In total we did 3 tastings ranging from large producers to smaller family run which was fascinating . The lunch was great however it was basically in a field with a tent over it (no toilets) so would have preferred it been at an establishment however our guide said they were just trialing they location ! All in all, amazing tour of you don’t have time to actually go stay in the region!

This was my first time visiting the champagne houses and really enjoyed the experience. We learned a lot about the process of making champagne, background on the Champagne region and a few other tidbits. One thing to note, unlike some of the American wineries I've been too. This tour isn't heavy on the drinking and there wasn't time after the tasting to buy a bottle and enjoy it at the winery. We weren't looking for that vibe so this tour was great for us!

The overall experience was really-really good, having different tastings and different tour guides during the day was particularly interesting. Also, our host - Jo was exceptionally attentive and really caring. We really enjoyed the tour to the little family winery where the whole tasting experience was more intimate (even tho seeing the production of Mumm was really intriguing.
