Trip Summary

Epernay Day Tour

This is the perfect day tour for those who are staying in Epernay and looking for a great introduction to Champagne, and for those staying in Reims who would like to spend the day in Epernay and the surrounding vineyards as the town is only 20 minutes by train from Reims station. Your first visit will take place at the largest and grandest Champagne House: Moët and Chandon, which is located on the Avenue de Champagne. Here, a guide will accompany you around the estate and through the extensive cellars. Your visit will conclude with two tastings of vintage Moët Champagnes. Following your tour, you will be taken by a pre-booked and pre-paid taxi to the famous village of Hautvillers, the “cradle of Champagne”. As well as having time to admire the spectacular views across the vineyards and visit the Church where Dom Perignon is buried, a comparative tasting session of three single varietal Champagnes will take place in a quaint tasting boutique in the village.

Your guide will take you back to Epernay at the end of the day.
