Less than 2 hours from Paris, spend a glorious day exploring how this sparkling wine is made, plus the beautiful surrounding region that adds to its historic importance.

On this day trip from Paris you will meet a vine grower, enjoy a traditional French lunch, visit the impressive Reims cathedral where most of the French kings have been crowned, and, of course, visit a prestigious champagne cellar.

 

Highlights of your Champagne excursion full day:

  • Hotel pick up and drop off in a private minibus (maximum 8 travelers) or private coach for larger groups
  • Start with the discovery of a Champagne vineyard around  the city of Reims. Once in the vineyard, the guide explains the Champagne soil, the three main grape varieties in Champagne, the vines through the seasons from pruning in winter to ripening and harvest in autumn
