Trip Summary

Based in Epernay, the wine capital of Champagne, this tour may just be the answer for those looking for an introduction to the unique Champagne Moet and Chandon.

After checking in at the 4* Hotel Jean Moët on the first day, you will be welcomed for an introductory tasting session of six Champagnes in a cosy wine bar in the historic centre of town.

Toward the end of the 18th Century, Jean-Remy Moët, grandson of founder Claude Moët, became famous as the man who introduced Champagne to the world. The important figures of the era, from the Marquise de Pompadour to Talleyrand to Napoléon quickly fell in love with the House’s effervescent wine. Moet and Chandon was soon the icon of success and elegance that it remains to this day. On day two of your Moet and Chandon tour, you will discover this when you take a short walk along the famous Avenue de Champagne, to reach Moet and Chandon, the largest and grandest Champagne House. Here, a guide will accompany you around the estate and through the extensive cellars. Your visit will conclude with two tastings of vintage Moët Champagnes.

Following your Moet and Chandon tour, you will be taken by a pre-booked and pre-paid taxi to the famous village of Hautvillers, the “cradle of Champagne”. As well as having time to admire the spectacular views across the vineyards and visit the Church where Dom Perignon is buried, a comparative tasting session of three single varietal Champagnes will take place in a quaint tasting boutique in the village. A light lunch of cheeses and gourmet local delicacies will also be served.

At the end of the tour, your taxi will take you back to Epernay, where the evening is free to do as you wish. We would be happy to suggest a restaurant for dinner.

As with all our tours, we can offer a whole range of exclusive visits and this itinerary can be completely tailor-made to suit your exact requirements. For example, you could dine as the estate’s private guests in the opulent dining room which welcomed Napoléon himself in years gone by. The perfect romantic evening or get together with friends and family.
