Visiting Champagne producers and cellars: different options
You can choose among various possibilities regarding your visit of Champagne producers and cellars in Reims or Epernay. First, the half-day option, then the full-day option. But Sparkling Tour also offers a fully customizable tailor-made visit.
The half-day semi-private visit
If you select the first option, your Champagne producer and cellar visit can take place during half a day, either in the morning or the afternoon. In any case, the itinerary will start with a stop in Dom Perignon’s village, namely Hautvillers. Then we will visit the first producer, learn how Champagne is made and taste 3 glasses. After that, we will go to the second producer – specializing in Grand Cru – where you will be able to taste three other types of Champagne. Please note that this Champagne producer and cellar visit is usually offered in English.
Full-day semi-private visit
As an alternative, you can also dedicate a full day to your Champagne producer and cellar tour. The full-day discovery tour will start at 9.50 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. Hautvillers will be the first stop and the opportunity for you to discover the home village to the famous Dom Perignon. Then, you will visit the Premier Cru vineyard. Once on site, you will be initiated to the secrets of Champagne or, more specifically, to its making. Obviously, a tasting will be offered by this first producer.
We will then have lunch in a renowned restaurant where you will have the opportunity to enjoy a sophisticated menu. Once the meal is over, we will carry on with the visit of two Grand Cru producers. Each visit will be an opportunity to taste three different types of Champagne. At the end of the day, you would have been served 9 types of Champagne.
The tailor-made private tour
