Meet your local guide at 2.00 pm in front of the tourist office of Reims Centre train station and start your afternoon Champagne tour with a drive through the countryside.
First stop on your itinerary is a visit and tasting at a family-run Champagne house. Your guide will take you to a visit of the traditional press which is still in use today, and the tank room as he shares details about the traditional method of making Champagne. Enjoy a tasting of several Champagnes from the house and acquire tasting knowledge and expertise with these rare Champagnes!
Next up is a drive through the famous Champagne Avenue in Epernay, the capital of Champagne, where some of the most prestigious Champagne houses are based such as Pol Roger, Perrier Jouët, Moët & Chandon and Boizel.
It's time for a stop to enjoy a moment in the vineyards, with breathtaking views of the UNESCO World Heritage Champagne vines. Your guide will tell you all about our “terroir” as you go.
Then discover the village of Hautvillers, the birthplace of Champagne, and visit the church where the famous monk Dom Pérignon is buried.
Your 2nd and final Champagne house visit of the day is to another family-run Champagne house where you will be able to taste and compare various “cuvées”!
