Complete Tour Description

On our Champagne day trips from Paris, you’ll experience the bounty of the French countryside as never before with the most elegant and refined taste the world has come to know. Among France’s wines, it is the only pièce de résistance to have won the title ‘Wine of Kings’ (and Queens), and with its graceful bubbles and range for every palate, it is now a delicacy we can all adore.

As you leave Paris via private coach your excitement will only be matched by the passion of your expert local guide, whose sole mission will be to impart their undying love and extensive knowledge of bubbly!

The first stop on your tour is the picturesque locale of Épernay. Depending on the day, your visit may be a standard group tour or on Tuesdays a semi-private tour with a limited number of guests. This tiny hamlet boasts the Avenue de Champagne, reputed to be the most expensive street in the world for all the priceless bottles in its miles of underground chalk cellars. Depending on how busy the producers are on the day, you’ll either descend beneath the streets to Moët & Chandon’s extensive network of ancient tunnels or visit the dynamic producer of Nicolas Feuillatte for a tour and your first tasting of champagne of the day.

Enjoy free time for lunch in Éparnay and discover this charming enclave. Whether strolling along its boulevards or admiring its stunning mansions, you will be totally immersed in the region’s essence. If it is the exquisite local cuisine you’re after, your guide will be on hand to offer tailored recommendations on how to enjoy it at its best.

Back on the coach, you'll embark on the breath-taking Route de Champagne. Watch as the rolling vineyards drift by your window as you make your way to the town of Hautvillers.

Famous as the birthplace of Champagne, this lovely village is home to a Benedictine abbey steeped in history whose cellar master was none other than a monk by the name of Dom Pérignon!

Your guide will lead you through the village, regaling you with its history and how its most famous resident came to discover the secret recipe for Champagne, which he thought so magical he is claimed to have cried ‘Come quickly – I am tasting the stars!’.

After exploring two iconic Champagne villages, you’ll discover a family-run boutique estate, where a local expert will walk you through every step of the champagne-making process. Roam the vineyard learning how the grapes are grown and nurtured and see the stunning private chateau of Veuve Clicquot before visiting the pressoir where the estate’s award-winning champagne is delicately assembled. Descend into candle-lit cellars with trade secrets on how best to mature and store Champagne, then peek at their incredible collection of rare vintages.

The finale of the day is, without doubt, the exclusive tasting of 3 of their Champagnes on a beautiful terrace overlooking the vineyards that stretch below you as far as the eye can see. With fresh memories of the day and quite possibly with stars still dancing on your palate, you’ll board your private coach back to Paris, happy in the knowledge that you have experienced this corner of paradise.
