What You Can Expect
As you tour this subterranean maze of chalk cellars with your knowledgeable private guide, learn about the process of turning white wine into something fizzy! Hear about temperature control and levels of humidity, and learn how the bubbles get into each bottle. At the end of your 1-hour walking tour around the cellars, try a glass of Moet Champagne and discuss its complicated creation with your guide.
Leaving Epernay behind, your private tour continues through Reims Mountain National Park, home of the prestigious Grand Cru vineyards, before reaching the charming village of Hautvillers. Often referred to as ‘the birthplace of Champagne,’ the village is best-known for its famous ex-resident Dom Pérignon, the Benedictine monk who spent much of his life producing and perfecting Champagne.
Reims is the last stop of your tour, and it’s here that you’ll visit the incredible House of Mumm Champagne cellars. As a sommelier guide walks you around, discover the different production stages involved in creating Mumm’s famous bubbly. End your tour on a high note, with a glass of GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, before returning to Paris.
My husband and I enjoyed the tour but felt that the price we paid wasn't worth the entire trip. The tour included transportation to and from the champagne region as well as one glass of champagne during each of the two tours we went on, but didn't include lunch (some of the other tours did). Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us good information on our way up, but we felt that the transportation portion was definitely the majority of what we paid for. It would have been nice if another glass of champagne or lunch was included, but we did enjoy the day.
