What You Can Expect

Champagne Tour from Paris: Moet and Chandon, Hautvillers and the House of Mumm

Champagne Tour from Paris: Moet and Chandon, Hautvillers and the House of Mumm

Leave Paris behind and head off with your expert guide to the prestigious Moet and Chandon Champagne house in Epernay, near Reims. Easily boasting the largest Champagne cellars in the world, this luxury Champagne house is home to some 17 miles (28 km) of underground tunnels where their world-famous sparkling wine matures.

As you tour this incredible labyrinth of chalk cellars with your guide, learn about the magical process of turning standard white wine into something fizzy! Hear about humidity levels and temperature control, and see for yourself how the bubbles get into each bottle. At the end of your 1-hour walking tour around the cellars, sample a glass of Moet Champagne and discuss its complex creation with the fellow Champagne lovers in your group.

From Epernay, hop back on board your air-conditioned minivan and travel through Reims Mountain National Park, home to Grand Cru vineyards, before reaching Hautvillers with your guide. Known as ‘the birthplace of Champagne,’ this charming village is best-known for its most famous ex-resident, Dom Pérignon, the innovative Benedictine monk who dedicated most of his life to producing and perfecting Champagne.

Reims is the last stop of your day, and in this city rich with tradition and culture, visit the must-see House of Mumm Champagne cellars. As a sommelier guide shows you around, discover the main stages involved in the production of Mumm’s famous Champagne and learn how Champagne has different levels of sweetness -- termed sec or demi-sec. End your tour on a high note, with a glass of highly regarded GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, before returning to Paris.

Excellent tour!! We loved being in a smaller group just us and another couple and our tour guide was knowledgeable and very funny. We were disappointed at first that we didn't get to go to Moet and Chandon but we LOVED Mercier and their champagne. We bought a bottle to bring home. The visit to Mumm was fantastic. Seeing where Dom Perignon was buried was fascinating and we loved visiting the cathedral in Reims. We enjoyed walking around Reims and even stopped into a champagne shop and bought some Dom Perignon. I would recommend this tour and Viator. Very professional and organized and an amazing tour. Cheers!

Epernay was beautiful. This is where Dom Perigon invented champagne. Then travel thru vineyards to nearby towns to sample the good stuff. Moet and Chandon were closed for remodeling but the other winery we went to was great. You take an elevator down into the tunnels of fermenting wine. Then you board a small train and a guide gives you the history of Mercier Winery. See the super large barrel of champagne that traveled by oxen to the worlds fair.

Great tour and scenic ride! My only complaint was that we were supposed to see Moet and Chandon, but saw Mercier instead. But Mercier was still fascinating champagne house!
