  • Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

    1. Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

    In 1871 Eugène Mercier began the pioneering project of constructing wine cellars: “Count by kilometers and not by meters,” he indicated to the architects. A few years later, 18 kilometers of impressive underground tunnels were created with an incredible cellar that now offers visitors the opportunity to experience an inspiring discovery. Come along and discover the Maison Mercier onboard a little train to travel across the cellars. Enjoy the audio tour followed by a tasting of two champagnes, the Mercier Brut and Mercier Brut Blanc de Noirs, with commentary. Possible tour languages include French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian.

    Visite guidée orientée prioritairement sur l'histoire de la maison Mercier et moins sur le champagne et la vigne en général. Bien pour une découverte et 1ère approche

    Our guide, a young intern from the Loire Valley working at the winery, was very knowledgeable and personable, providing detailed explanations of the history of the house and the production processes, and answering all our questions.
