On day two, you will be met at the hotel by a luxury chauffeured vehicle (a Mercedes E or S Class), which will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis. The day will consist of a visit to your favourite large, prestigious Champagne House for a tour and a flute or two of their Champagnes. There are several options subject to your preference and availabilities, including Mercier, GH Mumm, Pommery, Ruinart, Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot. Please note that a number of the more exclusive estates do not tend to receive visitors at weekends and some of them do not receive visitors at all. We would be pleased to discuss the various options with you and contact the individual estates accordingly. Afterwards, you will be taken to a quaint Champagne-making village, where you will visit a premium, up-and-coming boutique Champagne House to see first-hand, the fascinating Champagne making process from vine to bottle. The visit will be followed with a delicious three course lunch served at their estate, accompanied by a selection of their Champagnes. The highlight of your tour will without a doubt be the experience as the VIP guests of Moët and Chandon in Epernay. Here, you will be taken on a private Dom Pérignon tour, visiting some of the oldest areas of the cellars which are seldom visited by the public. A tasting of Dom Pérignon will conclude the visit in an elegant reception room at the Moët mansion.
