The tour departs from a centrally located pick up point in Paris
MOET AND CHANDON CHAMPAGNE HOUSE VISIT
Today, our champagne day tour will take you to Epernay, the epicenter of the champagne production. You will have the opportunity to stop at the world-famous Moët & Chandon winery, where you will be able to taste different kinds of champagnes. Stroll through the historic champagne cellars where champagne has been ageing for centuries. Moët & Chandon is not new in the game, as it was already loved by Napoléon I and the Marquise de Pompadour, who was the official chief mistress of King Louis XV. Today, the brand is one of the most distributed in the world and is heavily consumed at international events such as the Cannes Film Festival. During your visit you will learn about the different grapes varieties that are used in the making of the wine such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay or Pinot Gris. End your visit with a Champagne tasting session.
REIMS MOUNTAIN SIGHTSEEING AND VILLAGES
After lunch (not included) head straight to the Marne Valley and see where the Champagne grapes are grown. In the village of Hautvillers, make a stop to visit the tomb of Dom Pérignon, located in the beautiful Hautvillers Abbey. Dom Pérignon made his mark in history by profusely contributing to the enhancement of the production and the quality of wine in the Champagne region. He also pushed forward white and sparkling wines in a region where, in his time, red wine was still dominant. The legend says he was so skilled, he could tell which vineyard a single grape came from just by tasting it. Today, one of the most famous champagne brands, Dom Pérignon, is still named after him.
TOUR AND TASTING AT A FAMILY ESTATE
Finally, we will take you to a much smaller family Champagne producer. You will discover another side of the champagne making business, operating on a much smaller scale than Möet & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot and other big estates. Learn how champagne is traditionally made and try some vintages you have never tasted before. An authentic, small batch champagne wine coming straight from the Champagne region makes a great souvenir from a trip to France, or a gift that family and friends will love.
Return to Paris and end of our services.
