What To Expect
Leave Paris in a fully air-conditioned coach and head to the heart of French luxury in the Champagne Region, where you'll learn all the secrets behind this iconic drink of kings. Be immersed into the world of Champagne as your guide share his passion and extensive knowledge with you.
Start off with an exciting tour of Epernay, also known as the Capital of Champagne. This picturesque town is especially famous for its Avenue de Champagne - the world's most expensive avenue, thanks to the hordes of champagne stowed in the chalk cellars that stretch for miles underneath it.
Get the opportunity to descend into these underground tunnels and explore them for yourself as you visit the esteemed champagne house of Mercier, known for being the number one selling champagne in France. Discover why these cellars were considered revolutionary at the time of their construction and learn about their architect – the visionary founder of this house.
Then, enjoy some free time to discover this charming place. You can stroll along the Avenue admiring the stunning mansions, or taste some traditional local cuisine. Your guide will be on hand to offer tailored recommendations on how best to enjoy this lap of luxury.
Settle comfortably back into your seat and enjoy scenic views of the Route de Champagne's vineyards as you drive to your next destination - Hautvillers, once home of the famous monk Dom Perignon. See his tomb and the Benedictine abbey where he lived and invented the Champagne, and learn how he came to discover the secret recipe for this enchanting potion!
Continue to a family-run boutique estate, where a local expert will walk you through every detail of the champagne-making process. During your tour, visit the vineyards, the pressoir and the candle-lit cellars, and get to taste three different Champagnes produced on the grounds. This estate has long been home to the very finest of champagnes and you will be thrilled to come across the stunning private chateau of Veuve Clicquot before boarding your private coach back to Paris.
