Full description
Tour starts at your hotel (if located in Paris) or at the central Paris meeting point. Your driver guide will pick you up in a cozy air-conditioned minivan at around 7.30 AM. Enjoy tasty croissants on the way to Champagne, while your guide tells you all you need to know about the sparkling universe of champagne! Once you arrive in Champagne, you'll start your day with a visit to a very prestigious Estate (Moët & Chandon, Mumm, Veuve Clicquot, Mercier etc. > depending on supplier availability). Discover never-ending galleries filled with bottles and of course, finish the guided-tour with a tasting. Back in your air-conditioned minivan, admire the landscapes and stop in the heart of the vineyard to enjoy a masterclass led by your wine expert guide. He will teach you the basis of the wine professional tasting. Next stop is for lunch in a family-run champagne house or at a local restaurant (depending on availability). You will have the chance to taste several glasses of champagne and ratafias (another local wine), paired with local food. Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Champagne Rosé… what would you pair them with? After lunch, enjoy a digestive tour through the vineyard of the Côte des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne. Learn the characteristics of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, and enjoy amazing views over the vineyard. Get ready to take some pictures! Last but not least, visit another family-run winery where you will learn the art of sabrage or disgorgement “à la volée” (a technique for opening a champagne bottle), depending on availability.

This is a brilliant tour and a must if you are spending a couple of days in Paris! You get to try loads of different types of champagne throughout the day. Our guide Preston was excellent. He was very friendly, helpful and had a huge amount of knowledge about both wine and the champagne region. He also brought fresh croissants for the journey! We started in a big house, Pommery and learned about how champagne is made along with the history and a tasting. We then had a beautiful lunch (food was excellent) and tried more champagne here. We finished the day with a visit to a medium sized co-op. The day is structured very well as you learn all about champagne in the morning, and drink all afternoon!

The day was fabulous! Joel was an excellent guide. Beyond knowledgable about the area, wine, champagne. The tastings were plentiful. We had a little extra time due to traffic so he took us 2 church's and a stop for a gorgeous pic in front of a vineyard during the day. We would totally do it again next time we are in Paris!

Fantastic day trip from Paris. Picked up with fresh pastries for the drive and a very knowledgable tour guide. We visited one of the big champagne houses where you learn a lot about the champagne and the history of champagne. We then visited a couple of smaller houses which were fabulous and the tasting as great. The lunch provided was delicious and a great setting, plenty of food and drinks to go round. It was then topped off by a surprise stop at the top of a hill by a church and some pink champagne. All in all fantastic day and would highly recommend to anyone who likes champagne.
