House of Mumm

In 1827, three German brothers brought their experience of producing and merchandising wine to the Champagne region. Jacobus, Gottlieb and Phillip Mumm founded the House of Mumm, and set about producing some of the most well-regarded and celebrated champagnes in the world.

In 1852, the business was taken over by Georges Hermann Mumm, and under his direction, the winery was producing over 3 million bottles of champagne a year. In the 1920s, a Parisian lawyer named Rene LaLou became president, and for the next 50 years, Mumm champagnes greatly increased the house's output while maintaining the quality of the product set a century before. A period of malaise and lackluster vintages followed his death, but in the 1990s, technological innovations and tinkering with the grape compositions ensured that the legendary excellence of Mumm champagnes was here to stay.

Practical Info

Tour through the various stages of production, as you wander through the cool, subterranean cellars with your guide. The cellars are also home to a museum of the House of Mumm and the history of champagne. These conclude with a tasting of the world-famous Cordon Rouge and Cordon Rouge Vintage or of Mumm Grand Cru and Mumm Brut Rosé. In Reims, there are the usual Gothic cathedrals and World War II monuments found throughout the region and throughout France. Visitors may want to take a break from sightseeing, and Reims has several nice parks; in particular, the Park de la Patte d'Oie has fountains, an artificial river and a children's area.
