During your drive, pass by famous Champagne Houses such as Pommery and Taittinger. 

Enjoy a full tour of the prestigious Champagne House “Veuve Clicquot” as an introduction to the Champagne making process. You will get to enter the UNESCO chalk cellars that are amazingly deep and long. Savor a nice morning Champagne glass and prepare your palate for 10 Champagne wines tasted during the day!
Drive through the Champagne vineyards and have a stop among the vines to enjoy explanations about the vine-growing process and also a wonderful scenery view of the Champagne region. Be welcomed in a restored Champagne house and take one more step towards the sparkling beverage world. Learn about the different aromas and flavors that can be found in Champagne through an olfactory workshop and a challenging blind tasting. Enjoy a traditional aperitif followed by a regional lunch with paired wines and Champagnes in a fun and familial atmosphere. Get introduced to local products like baguette, Reims’ ham, Paté en croute, regional cheeses, pink biscuit, Ratafia and more.
Appreciate the charming hillsides of Champagne and peek-behind-the-scenes of a family run boutique winery. Visit the traditional press, vat room and cellar of an authentic Champagne grower. Stroll down the cool cellar corridors and glance at the immense quantity of bottles slowly maturing. Enjoy several tastings of their best–seller “cuvees” and find the best values of Champagne!
