Planning Your Day in Champagne

All private tours are personalised

Answers to the following questions will help you create the ideal day in Champagne. Itineraries depend on vineyard availability, preferred visits, distances, location & duration of lunch.

1. Where will we pick you up? Paris, Reims or Charles de Gaulle Airport.
2. How would you like to split the day between the Champagne House / Brand and grower vineyards?
3. Which area do you want to visit Reims, Epernay or both?
4. Do you have an interest in visiting Reims Cathedral and/or Hautvillers?

Timing from Paris, Reims or Epernay
On a full day (8hrs) tours departing from Reims or Épernay, you will have time for 4 or 5 visits, split between champagne / historical sites. If we pick you up from Paris by car, (4hrs roundtrip), you generally have time for 3 or 4 visits. Keep in mind that Champagne houses and vineyards close for lunch and all at different times. Generally, opening times vary by day between 9am and 10am with closing times between 5pm and 6pm.

Champagne Houses & Grower Vineyards
Full Day Options:

2 Champagne House visits + 1 Vineyard Tasting Only + 1 Historical Visit
1 Champagne House visits + 2 Vineyard Visits + 1 Historical Visit
2 Vineyard Visits + 2 Tasting Only

Some visitors like to visit the most famous house cellars like Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Ruinart and Pommery in Reims or Moët et Chandon in Epernay.

In a single day you can visit a maximum of 2 and we do not recommend visiting more than one in Reims. To see a selection of Champagne Houses look at the Classic Tour Page

Most visitors love to combine and compare visits to small family grower producer vineyards with one Champagne House. They get a better feel for the type of work and range of processes involved in making the world's most celebrated wine, and they get to do many more tastings! We select these family domaines based on logistics, their availability and specific requests of champagne style or preferred grape.
