Note: Our Epernay Champagne Day Tour is available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday all year round.
Boarding at Gare d'Est, you'll be bound by train for Champagne, where Dom Perignon, father of the house of Moet and Chandon, started it all.
Upon arrival in Reims, you'll join the 8 person van for an English only tour, starting with a drive through along the famed Scenic Champagne Route, taking in the landscape and learning the story of such famed houses as Bollinger, Deutz and Gosset. Your morning finishes with a tour and tasting at the Moet and Chandon cellars, including a glass of Dom Perignon.
The town of Epernay from afar
You continue with a champagne tasting and lunch in Epernay, and a historical overview covering the development of Blanc de blancs, Blanc de noirs and Rosé, and learning the main terroirs of the Champagne region (Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Blanc).
After lunch, you'll travel to the Marne Valley and the former Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers, where Dom Perignon is buried. With 1000 small producers in the region, no visit is complete without touring a small family-owned vineyard and chateau, where you will experience a final tasting.
Tour timing puts you back in Paris before dinner.
