What to expect

Start your tour with a pick-up from your hotel in Paris. After a light breakfast, visit a champagne vineyard near Reims and meet with the wine-grower.
Our specialized guide will inform you about the vineyard, the champagne soil, the vines and the work that is done throughout the year. Here you will discover the different steps of champagne-making, learn why the geographical situation of the region is essential and how the talent and personality of the professional wine-grower results in each unique vintage.
From classic notions about wine-tasting, you will be more particularly initiated to the techniques applied for champagne-tasting. You will have the possibility to buy some champagne at the producer’s rates.

Then you will head to a restaurant in Reims for a traditional lunch.

In the afternoon, you will take part to a guided visit to Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral. Reims Cathedral is the site where Clovis, the first Christian king of the Franks, was christened. It is also where the coronations of 25 kings of France, from Louis VIII in 1223 to Charles X in 1825 were held. This thirteenth-century gothic cathedral is a medieval religious jewel and a symbolic place for all European people. Indulge yourself and admire the breathtaking façade, lacy stonework, illuminated stained glass windows and be charmed by the famous “smiling angel” sculpture that welcomes you at the northern portico.

The next place is an underground chalk cellar of one of Reims' most famous Champagne houses. Cultivate your knowledge about the history of champagne and how the most prestigious houses contributed throughout the ages to provide the exceptional quality of wines we enjoy today. You will be told about some of the traditional secrets of these famous vintners and thus, better understand the differences.

You will head back to Paris (arrival around 8.00 pm).
