Learn how Champagne is made, and at the end of this 11-hour day all inclusive private tour, you’ll be able to answer: What is a Blanc de Blancs, a Blanc de Noirs? How is Champagne Rosé made? Do ‘Grands Crus’ and ‘Premiers Crus’ exist in Champagne? Is there a specific Champagne terroir?

After early morning hotel pickup in Paris, travel with your knowledgeable guide approx. 90 minutes east of the city in your private car or minivan. En route, bite into flaky croissants while hearing about the winemaking region of Champagne and its heritage.

Arrive at your first Champagne estate of the day, such as Moët & Chandon, Mumm or Veuve Clicquot (depending on availability). Step inside cellars, walk through a maze of galleries and enjoy a tasting at the end of the guided tour. Come away knowing the secrets behind the Méthode Champenoise.

Back in your air-conditioned minivan, pass through the vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne, between Reims, Ay and Epernay. As you admire the colorful landscapes, learn more about the three different Champagne grapes: chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier.

Settle in at a family-run Champagne estate (or a local restaurant, depending on availability) where you’ll meet the winemaker and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional food, paired with a Champagne tasting. After lunch, visit the legendary Hautvillers, a charming French village. Stop at the abbey where Benedictine Monk Dom Perignon first made the sparkling wine more than three hundred years ago.

Then, discover another, smaller, winery and depending on availability, see a sabrage (opening a bottle with a blade) or a dégorgement à la volée (pop open the bottle, shooting out Champagne). Here, you’ll get to taste authentic Champagnes largely unavailable in the rest of the world. You’ll be dropped off back in your hotel in early evening.
