Trip Summary

Champagne Day Tour from Paris

This day tour is ideal for those who are staying in Paris and looking for a great introduction to Champagne. We will arrange for travel from Paris by high-speed train to Champagne Ardenne station, where a taxi will be waiting to take you to Reims station, where you will be met by an English-speaking specialist driver/guide, who will accompany you throughout the day as part of a small group (maximum eight guests). En route to the Champagne vineyards, your guide will regale you with tales and anecdotes of the history of Champagne and its vineyards, introducing you to the particularities of the region. You will stop in a vineyard to learn about the work undertaken here and the tour is designed to be as hands-on as possible. Here, your guide will explain the grape varieties permitted in Champagne and the yearly cycle of the work carried out in the vineyards.

You will then firstly visit a small, family-run producer of Champagnes for a full tour of the fascinating Champagne making process from press to bottle, and at least three tastings. A lunch with a glass of wine, water and coffee will then be served in a local restaurant.

After a tour of the House, you will taste Champagnes in contrasting style to those tasted during the morning.
