Full description
Explore one of the great wine-producing areas of France on a small group tour of the Champagne region. Sample the sparkling produce of this world-renowned area, such as the Champagnes of Taittinger, where the vines cover some 288 hectares distributed over 34 different vineyards, including some of the appellation’s finest.

With varietals consisting of 50% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 35% Chardonnay, the Taittinger vineyard is an unsurpassed example of a Champagne style in which Chardonnay plays such a significant role. The vineyard’s own production is supplemented by the contractual acquisition of grapes from independent suppliers operating the finest vineyards in the Champagne region.

En route to Épernay, travel through the Marne Valley vineyards to meet the legendary monk Dom Pérignon, who finalized the process to elaborate Champagne wines and is now buried in the church of the former Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers. Visit the "Capital of Champagne" at Épernay, where the main street appears like an exhibition of opulent mansions housing illustrious Maisons de Champagne. Discover some of the most prestigious names, including Moët & Chandon, Perrier-Jouet and Mercier, and learn about the 100 kilometers of tunnels beneath the street!

Take a guided tour and get a tasting at the world famous Grande Maison de Champagne Moët & Chandon. Founded in 1743 by Claude Möet, its history is linked to famous figures such as the Marquise de Pompadour and Napoleon I. Moët & Chandon Champagne has been sold to many important historical events, including the coronation of King Edward VII, the Cannes Film Festival and the 120th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.
