What you’ll do

On this full-day tour to Champagne from Paris, we’ll explore the city of Reims and its surrounding countryside, home to some of the most important champagne producers in the world.

We also visit the cathedral — a marvel of Gothic architecture where the kings of France were crowned until 1825.

We’ll visit the vineyards of small local winemakers and explore the cellars of a world-renowned champagne house…read more

We’ll first visit the massive cellars of one of the celebrated champagne houses like Taittinger, Lanson, or Pommery (depending on availability). Wherever we go, it’ll be best to bring a sweater — these caves, hidden 25 feet below street level, stay at a chilly 52 degrees even on the hottest summer days. As we explore the expansive labyrinths of underground cellars, we’ll learn about the process of making, storing, and aging champagne from some of the best in the business.

We’ll learn about the history of the Champagne region and why its climate is perfect for the production of effervescent wine. At the end of the day, thanks to tastings and conversations with specialists, we’ll have expanded our palates and learned to appreciate the nuances of a variety of different champagnes.After taking the 45 min speed train from Paris to Reims, traveling in the company of our champagne expert we’ll drive through the countryside to small towns to visit the vineyards of local producers. We’ll stop for lunch in a local restaurant with a view of the vine-covered hills of the Champagne region and discuss the multiple factors that make Champagne terroir so unique.

While sipping the effervescence of different champagne types we’ll learn its production process and be given the keys to understanding and appreciating champagne like an expert.
