Your journey continues on to the historical village of Hautvillers, birthplace of Champagne and a visit to the church where the famous monk Dom Pérignon is buried.
Next, head towards Epernay for a drive along one of the most famous roads in the world, the Champagne Avenue in Epernay.

Visiting the Champagne houses, you will be guided through the cellars, tour the traditional press and tank room and learn about the traditional Champagne method as you go.
