Your driver will pick you up at your hotel in Paris at 8 a.m. and whisk you away to the verdant and romantic region of Champagne for a delightful day of sightseeing and champagne tastings.
Enjoy a relaxing and scenic drive out to the rolling, green vineyards of Champagne, just two hours from Paris. Your first port of call is the pretty village of Hautvillers, known as the cradle of Champagne. Step inside the church, where you’ll find the tomb of the Benedictine monk Dom Perignon, whose name is now found on the finest (and most expensive!) champagne in the world. Then it’s a short drive to your first champagne house where you’ll enjoy a fully guided tour of the cellars and production facilities, learning all about the history of champagne, the complexities of how it is made from grape picking to disgorgement and bottling. You will be introduced to a variety of champagnes – with the option of purchasing some to take home.
Head to the attractive town of Epernay, the true home of champagne. Enjoy some free time for lunch (not included) and explore the chic boutiques filled with champagne souvenirs from flutes to swords, and be sure to take some photos along the iconic Avenue de Champagne.
Next, you’ll drive a short distance to your second champagne house of the day, for an interactive tour of their facilities. Learn all about the ‘terroir’ and appellation, the different grape varieties, the harvesting and processing, and how the many vineyards – some 15,000 – across the Champagne region work closely together. And of course, enjoy a variety of delicious vintages during the tastings.
After a luxurious day, it’s time to enjoy a relaxing drive back to your hotel in Paris.
