My passion for Champagne is the driving force behind our highly personalised tours.
After my first taste of Champagne I was hooked for life.
After moving to France to specialise in luxury photography for the big names Cartier, Hermès, Hennessy, Vogue even some Champagne brands as Ruinart that road took me far working with people passionate about what they do. France has an incredible sense of fine style, Champagne has one of the oldest history of striving for perfection.
Involved in luxury products, one is always searching excellence which had me touring Prosecco in Italy, Cava in Spain, and no less our favourite; Champagne!
Summers being mostly free, I found a way to share this passion. Since 2015 I have been taking clients from Paris to Champagne on 100s of tours. Still learning, still improving and still loving it!
My love of Champagne found a way to not only learn about this wonderful wine, yet share these experiences with you. Starting in 2015 the first E-Bike tours offered in Champage taking hundreds of folk out to Epernay. There is always something for everyone, regardless of age or level of wine appreciation, nor ability to ride*.
Each tour garnered valuable feedback making for a deeper understanding of what you are looking for and how tours can be personalised. Never a scripted tour, always unique to each group, and your guide will be me! You are not just another client. Our tours are a way of sharing a special moment together adapted to you and your friends as the day progresses.
Not surprisingly, my son is a wine expert that continues strive for excellence.
We do this out of love for Champagne, the wine and the region, its history, and deepest respect for the very people that work so hard to maintain produce our beloved bubbly Champagne!
Two distinct types of tours. E-Bikes to be picked up in Eprenay. More of a bike tour with stops, the E-Bike part just makes it easier to get up to the top of the Hill in Hautvillers where the church where Dom Perignon lived and worked. About Champagne Tasting Tours where-how-when answers covered the “why” is obvious, you love Champagne!
By car, semi or private tours from Paris to Champagne, personalised for visits and villages. These can be extended with overnight stays if desired.
For E-Bike tours, we take a train to Epernay leaving from Gare de l’Est and return to the same. Detailed instructions will be sent. Don’t worry it is easy to get to, and we leave as a group, everything is taken care of.
By car we will pick you up if in central PAris or arrange for a pick up place that will be easy to get to. Since it is early traffic is light. Not true for the return to Paris thus a drop off point is strongly suggested if you have dinner plans (you can be stuck in traffic for a good while…).
Reserve your dates, your type of tour, expectaions, wish list etc. As soon as the deposit is paid, every effort will be made to assure your desired tours. That said the big houses have a high demand, so sometimes an alternative must be arranged in a similar house.
From April to October for Ebike tours. By car almost any time just note that between Christmas and New Years few houses allow tours. Many also close after November until starting again in April.
Leaving tiomes are by car generally 7:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. train departures) returning by car at 7 p.m. ( depending on traffic) or 6:30 p.m. by train.
By car it is flexible if you don’t have plans, by train there is less margin for planning as train schedules are fixed.

Champagne is a little cooler than Paris. Sometimes foggy humid in the morning. Comfortable shoes, and ones you don’t mind getting dirty when we walk into the vineyards.
Something warmer than you’d expect for cellar visits. For good reason all cellars are less than 12ºC 54ºF!!! all year long, so be warned. Summers are fantastic with many days of sun and warm if not hot. Spring and fall cool mornings moderate daytimes.
Sports clothes is fine, or just street clothes. One could say to be respectful in churches covering shoulders is appreciated and no flip flops yet I haven’t had or seen any problems on that aspect in Champagne…
