Trip Summary

Champagne Day Tour from Paris

This day tour is ideal for those who are staying in Paris and looking for a great introduction to Champagne. We will arrange for travel from Paris by high-speed train and you will be met at the station in Champagne by an English-speaking specialist driver/guide, who will accompany you throughout the day. En route to the Champagne vineyards, your guide will regale you with tales and anecdotes of the history of Champagne and its vineyards, introducing you to the particularities of the region. You will stop in a vineyard to learn about the work undertaken here and the tour is designed to be as hands-on as possible. Here, your guide will explain the grape varieties permitted in Champagne and the yearly cycle of the work carried out in the vineyards.

You will then firstly visit a small, family-run producer of Champagnes for a full tour of the fascinating Champagne making process from press to bottle, and at least three tastings. A lunch with a glass of wine, water and coffee will then be served in a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, your guide will take you to another family-run estate, situated in another of the principle regions of Champagne. After a tour of the House, you will taste Champagnes in contrasting style to those tasted during the morning. Ending the day in style, you will then visit your favourite large, prestigious Champagne House for a tour and tastings. Options include Moët and Chandon to taste two vintage Champagnes, Taittinger, where two Champagnes will be served, GH Mumm to taste their Blanc de Blancs and Blancs de Noirs Champagnes, Pommery to sample two Champagnes, Ruinart to taste Ruinart Blanc de Blancs or Ruinart rosé followed by their flagship Prestige Cuvée Dom Ruinart, white or rosé and Veuve Clicquot, to enjoy a flute of their celebrated La Grande Dame. Your guide will take you back to the train station following the tour.
