Tour Details

Are you ready to embark on a a full-day Champagne Tasting Tour from Paris?
Starting off by admiring Reims’s Notre Dame cathedral one of France’s most beautiful restored masterpieces featuring stained glass like no other! After, prepare to be delighted by beautiful villages and vineyards while driving onwards to the birthplace of Champagne where Dom Perignon set the way for making champagne as we know and love.

Champagne Tasting Tour from Paris leaves from the Paris pick up point, a short drive of less than 2 hours you’ll be in Champagne. In Champagne’s biggest city you’ll be immersed in culture throughout the ages in the Notre Dame Cathedral, a recently renovated masterpiece with the greatest collection of stain glass windows including Marc Chagall. A short drive away you’ll be in vineyards. Further on we’ll reach the small, yet important village of Hautvillers perching over the Marne Valley. The church we’ll visit (Saint Sindulphe) has a place in history as monk Dom Perignon perfected methods and care of the vines, and processes for making the best wines from expansive vineyards around the church.

Your first private tour of a small producer’s cellars and expert level tasting will follow. This stop is often the highlight of the tour, you’ll learn every step of the process, see bottles in aging right in front of you, and experience champagne making in an intimate way that no big house can offer.

Lunch in Epernay: Your guide will suggest suitable restaurants that you will love. There are choices depending on availability, yet they are all great!

We’ll be sure to take a slow drive up the richest avenue in France, not because of the famous houses you’ll see above ground but what is just below the kilometre long myriad of tunnels with 200 million bottles of champagne!

To complete your experience a mid sized to big producer is going to impress you. That could be Moët et Chandon, Mercier, Nicolas Feuillatte, Castellane, or Ayala in Aÿ, depending on availability. In peak season you might visit Veuve Clicquot, Pommery, G.H. Mumm, Lanson, or Canard Duchêne in Reims first, afterwards visit a small producer in the afternoon. If you have a favourite, ask well in advance as places in the big houses such as Veuve Clicquot, Moët & Chandon Taittinger Mumm Ayala Gosset Bollinger etc are all increasingly difficult to reserve places with short notice.

You’ll be inspired to try your new found tasting knowledge on one last tasting at a small producer before the drive back to Paris after a fun and fact filled day that will stay in your memories forevermore.

From the very start you’ll start learning about Champagne and champagne on the trip towards Reims. Following in real time in the vineyards, and wineries the entire process from the vine to your glass. You’ll be well on your way to becoming a Champagne expert by the end of the day!

Store away all those memories on your way back to Paris. Drop off is at the point of departure or before. Please note traffic is always dense in Paris, patience is virtue.
