  • Learn about the lost art of Sabrage and other old–world techniques

Full description
Start your tour in central Paris in a comfortable air-conditioned minibus and head to the Champagne region. Step back in time some 300 years with a visit to the Benedictine Abbey in Hautvillers, where the famous Dom Perignon pioneered production methods that made champagne the drink it is today. Tour the abbey and see where Perignon worked, learn about the dangers of exploding wine bottles and how the search to stop this phenomenon inspired many of Perignon's innovations.

Stop at a family–run winery and discover how this family has been making champagne for three generations. Have lunch in Epernay, a hub for all the great champagne-making houses. 

At the end of your tour, hop in the mini-bus and return to Paris. Arrive around 6:30 PM, just in time to get a few more recommendations from your guide and head out for dinner.
