Small-Group Champagne Tour with Champagne Tastings and Lunch from Epernay
US$164.40
Overview
Discover the effervescent secrets behind France’s famous Champagne region on this afternoon, small-group tasting tour from Epernay. Admire the houses of esteemed producers along the city’s ‘Avenue du Champagne,’ and gain insight into the complex Champagne-making process at a tasting class. Tour the cellars and sip best-selling ‘cuvees’ at a boutique family winery, and end the day on a bubbly note with an aperitif in the vineyards.
What to Expect
Meet your driver and guide at the Epernay tourist office in the early afternoon, and set off with a small group in a comfortable minivan. Take a scenic drive through the Cru and Grand Cru vineyards outside of town and along the famous ‘Avenue du Champagne,’ home to some of the world's most prestigious producers including Moët et Chandon, Perrier Jouet, and Pol Roger.

Next, it's time to pop open some bottles with a tasting class at the Champagne Academy. Learn about the complex and specific Champagne-making process and what distinguishes the prized bubbly from other sparkling wines. Get tips on how to appreciate the aroma and flavor of fine Champagne while tasting three different blends.

Continue on through the scenic hillsides to a boutique family winery for a behind-the-scenes look at the production process. See the traditional grape press, vat room, and aging cellars, and taste several of the estate’s most popular cuvees. Finally, in the afternoon’s golden hour, enjoy a French aperitif surrounded by vineyards. The 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at the Epernay tourist office.
