Meet your guide at the Reims Train Station in the center of the city in time for a 9 a.m. departure. Climb aboard a comfortable minivan with a total of eight passengers or fewer and begin your drive to Champagne country.
Begin your tour with a visit to one of France’s most famous Champagne houses: Moët and Chandon, Veuve Cliquot, or Taittinger. Learn about the global Champagne industry while tasting your first glass of the day.
Then, continue to La Montagne de Reims and walk through the vineyards while learning about grape varieties from your guide, before driving down Champagne Avenue in Epernay. Stop to visit the historical town of Hautvillers, former home to the Champagne master Monk Dom Perignon, and visit the church where it is rumored Champagne first flowed.
Enjoy a local lunch of regional specialties like Reims ham and rose biscuits paired with wine and Champagne before taking a tasting class that takes you through the process from grape to bottle. Visit a final family-run winery that uses traditional processes before returning to Reims.
