What You Can Expect

Small-Group Wine-Tasting Trip to the Champagne Region from Paris

Small-Group Wine-Tasting Trip to the Champagne Region from Paris

After pickup from your hotel or apartment in Paris, relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan on the short drive to the Champagne region of France. Your small-group tour is guided by a trained sommelier with an extensive knowledge of the Champagne region and its beautiful vineyards.

Your first stop is the world-famous Champagne house Moët & Chandon, near the town of Epernay. During your tour, learn about the Champagne-making process as you discover the underground chalk cellars where the Champagne is aged. Finish the tour with the day’s first glass of bubbly, and then hop back in your minivan for the drive to the delightful village of Hautvilliers, home to the ancient Benedictine abbey where a local monk by the name of Dom Pérignon (maybe you’ve heard of him?) worked on the creation of Champagne in the 18th century.

From Hautvilliers, head to a small boutique winery that produces high-quality Champagne. After a tour of the winery, taste three different Champagnes and one wine while enjoying a French lunch of cheese and charcuterie (cured meats like sausage and pâté) and admiring the spectacular views of the Marne Valley. In the afternoon, your tour continues to the Premier Crus area, where you’ll visit another boutique winery for your final Champagne tasting of the day. You’ll receive three tastings of Premier Crus (a classification of French wine that denotes very high quality) before heading back to Paris.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Great trip! Small group was a pleasure versus some of the larger bus tours, our guide, Daniel, was extremely knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend the day with (a must especially for a small group being together 12 hours!) and the 3 champagne makers they chose were outstanding. A real pleasure to start with the largest and best known (Moet) and then to experience the smaller and, by most standards, higher quality champagne makers in the region. On top of all of that, the lunch at one of the vineyards was truly an outstanding local experience. I would recommend to any and all.
