Tour & tasting
When in Champagne, you absolutely must visit at least one small champagne producer or grand champagne house. We suggest you visit both, because they are so vastly different and so much fun!
A champagne producer is often a family company that makes champagne exclusively from their own vineyards. Visiting a producer is above all a personal experience!
The producer will tell you all about the production process, from the grape varieties and the terroir to the labelling process. You’ll get to know the champagne producer in a unique and informal way, and directly experience their passion and love for the region. And to round it out, enjoy the chance to sample a variety of their champagnes.
The grand champagne houses often bear a famous, household name. They produce champagne from their own vineyards as well as grapes purchased from the numerous surrounding producers. You will discover the atmosphere and character of a grand champagne house during your tour.
The experience is entirely different to visiting a small producer. Many have a rich history and impressive buildings with cellars that stretch for miles. In addition, their reputation is important to the Champagne region.
After your tour, you can sample an array of the champagnes made by this champagne house.
Impression of a tour & tasting
It is even possible to stay on for lunch or dinner in the restaurants at the large champagne houses. Or perhaps you’d prefer a bicycle ride followed by a private tasting at one of the large houses’ chateaus. Let us know your budget and your wishes. Prices for private visits vary from €80 to €450 per person.
When you like to combine this with a lunch, dinner or ‘amuche bouche’ like cheese or even chocolate, that is possible.
