Trip details

Day 1

After settling into your hotel in the heart of historic Reims, set off to visit the world famous Champagne Taittinger and enjoy three tutored tastings. This Champagne house is one of the last great Champagne houses to have retained its independence. After exploring Reims in the evening, relax with a glass of bubbles in the comfort of your accommodation’s trendy Champagne bar (not included).

Day 2

The following day your friendly English speaking wine guide will take you on a full wine tour to the nearby Côtes des Blancs and Grand Cru Village vineyards. Enjoy the scenery of the grandeur of the famous Avenue du Champagne in Epernay.  Today you will visit two estates including the sparkling and glamorous Moët & Chandon, this legendary brand is now one of the most expensive estates in the region . You will also visit a family run estate where you’ll meet the maker and be invited to explore their cellars, taste their wines and share their passion whilst you learn a few things about the production process.   You’ll sample at least seven Champagnes throughout the day and stop for a leisurely champagne tasting lunch in a nearby restaurant or another wine estate.  This day tour includes a visit to the village of Hautvillers and a chance to see the tomb of Dom Perignon – the monk to which we owe thanks for all these bubbles.

Day 3

The final day in the Capital of Champagne is yours to explore. Perhaps a visit to the gothic splendour of Notre Dame Cathedral, a final wander among the winding streets of Reims or simply relax in your hotel’s pool before returning home.
