1. From Paris: Prestige Champagne Tour and Tastings
Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Paris, and then journey towards the Champagne wine lands to learn all about its wine-making culture. Visit one of the region's top producers, such as Dom Pérignon or Ruinart, and look inside the cellars to learn how the sparkling wine is made. Drive through the vineyards of Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs, and Vallée de la Marne between Reims, Ay and Epernay. Hear about the three different grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) of the region before lunch at a Michelin star restaurant in a magnificent château located inside a beautiful park. Visit the enchanting village of Hautvillers, and stop at the abbey where the Benedictine monk Dom Perignon worked as a cellar master more than 300 years ago. Be amazed by the tools used to craft exceptional wines and taste three authentic Champagnes typically unavailable in the rest of the world.
