Champagne has long been associated with royalty and nobility - perhaps that’s the reason why, when it’s time for a celebration, there’s no substitute. Real champagne, of course, comes from the Champagne region, five wine-producing districts, one of which is Reims, best-known for Pinot noir grapes. This sensational gift experience in France takes you to several of the most prestigious wineries in the area, beginning with a tour of the iconic Champagne Mercier. Visit the cellars by descending in a glass elevator, and taste three flutes of their world-renowned champagnes.
Afterwards, you’ll be taken by prepaid taxi to the village of Hautvillers, often referred to as the “cradle of Champagne”. Visit the grave of Dom Perignon, and gaze across the beautiful vineyard scenery before a tasting session in a village boutique, accompanied by a light lunch of cheese and other gourmet delicacies. Following your return to Epernay you’ll meet a guide and be transported to a small, family-run House for another tour and tasting session. Love champagne? You’ll love this experience.
