Vineyard Lunches

Champagne's the perfect complement to many kinds of food as well as an aperitif served on its own. High levels of acidity and low quantities of sugar, make it ideal for both seafood, caviar, high fat foods like French Fries, and lightly flavoured white fish with a young non vintage fruity Blanc de Blanc, whilst a more mature Blanc de Blanc vintage pairs better with Caviar.

A nice way to taste various regional products with 3 different Champagnes is at the bistro Au 36 in Hautvillers. Menus start at 39€pp and we can organise these for you.

Very few vineyards provide a lunch service to small groups, but over the years, a few have slowly started to offer a picnic or light lunch. It’s wonderful way in the middle of the day to relax and enjoy being in the heart of a wine maker's estate.
