Itinerary: Your half day tour (4hrs) will include a visit to 2 or 3 Family Estates. Depending on the season, you might see the harvest, techniques of pruning or grape tasting, the management of new and reserve wines, blending, second fermentation, degorgement. Most importantly you will be able to enjoy multiple tastings! Vineyard visits are generally private however some vineyards may add a few people to the visit if they have limited time & staff at the time of your tour. We can not not control this but we do our best. Your understanding is appreciated.
Pick Up: Your guide will meet you in Reims, Epernay or one of the hotels in between at 8:45 or 1:45pm +/- and drive you through the vineyards and French countryside to visit small family domaines to discover the wide range of tastes and styles of Champagne. We'll help you plan the other half of your day on request.
Drop off: The station to return to Paris, or your local accommodation, Reims Cathedral, a local restaurant or our Champagne Tour partner for tastings of top quality grower producers who are members of the Tresor de Champagne Club.
