Champagne

Mumm's windmill above the Champagne vineyards at VerzenayThe delightful Champagne region remains our most popular destination, but what makes it so great? In part, it is because the region is so easy to get to . It is accessible from central Paris in just 45 minutes using the high speed rail line linking Paris with eastern France. Charles de Gaulle airport is even closer with a journey time to Champagne of 30 minutes on this line. For our UK customers, it is situated less than 2 ½ hours’ drive from Calais making it the UK’s closest premium wine region.

Other reasons include the recently UNESCO Classified picturesque hillsides and valleys, covered in vines and forests and the sense of history associated with the region. The city of Reims is home to no less than four UNESCO World Heritage sites, including one of the finest gothic cathedrals in northern Europe where 25 kings of France were crowned. It was on the front line in both the first and second World Wars, and is also where the formal surrender was signed at the end of World War II. However, all of these reasons tell only part of the story. The main reason remains the world-famous wine.
