Take a private Champagne tour any day of the year departing from Paris.
Your private Champagne tour begins with a Paris hotel or apartment pickup by your English speaking driver guide and departure from Paris at 8:00 AM. Your luxury private Champagne tour can be customized to suit your wishes, so tell us if you have a favorite Champagne and we'll make every effort to book an appointment at that house.
Your private Champagne tour should visit two Champagne houses (one in the morning and one in the afternoon). Select from Moet and Chandon, Veuve Cliquot, and Ruinart or you might choose to enjoy a visit to Bollinger, Krug, Henriot, Pol Roger, Piper & Charles Heidsieck or Perrier-Jouet. Many clients wish us to book a very small private winery for a unique tasting.
The art of blending the three grapes is the essence of Champagne. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay are the three grapes used for Champagne and how these three wines are blended is specific to each wine maker. During your Champagne tour, you will understand more about the magic of sparkling, the long aging of the bottles in the cellars, lying the bottles horizontally (sur latte) or upside down (sur pointe). You'll learn about the techniques of riddling and disgorgement. You will better understand the differences in the Champagnes and why you prefer one to another.
For lunch, a table can be booked in a little brasserie or bistrot unless you'd prefer a gourmet restaurant. This will determine the time for the afternoon Champagne visit.
The Champagne Country can also includes some special sightseeing and landmarks, so that you will have tasted the region in all ways. The Cathedral of Reims, St Remi Basilica, and the Museum of the Surrender are several places of interest in Reims.
Entrances and meals are not included in the cost for the private tours, but we will be able to let you know the tasting costs.
The Champagne tour is a memorable day (or days) with bubbly Champagne enjoyment in the region of Reims and Epernay!
Your private Champagne tour will return to Paris by 6:00 PM.
