Reims & Champagne: A Private Full-Day Odyssey

Embark on an unforgettable private adventure that blends the grandeur of Reims with the sparkling allure of Champagne!

Unveiling Reims Cathedral:

Your journey begins with your friendly and knowledgeable English-speaking guide, a Champagne expert eager to share their passion. Together, you'll delve into the heart of Reims, where a guided tour awaits at the magnificent Reims Cathedral. 

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this 13th-century masterpiece of Gothic architecture boasts stunning stained glass windows, including those created by Marc Chagall. Step inside to admire the intricate details, including the elaborate 15th-century Gothic Organ Case and the awe-inspiring statuary collection, featuring over 2,300 statues including the iconic "Smiling Angel." Learn about the Cathedral's historical significance as the coronation site for French monarchs, with Joan of Arc famously playing a pivotal role in Charles VII's coronation ceremony.

A Toast at Veuve Clicquot (or similar):

Next, immerse yourself in the world of Champagne with a visit to the prestigious Veuve Clicquot Champagne House (or a similar Maison). Delve into the House's rich history, starting with its founding in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron. Discover the captivating story of Madame Clicquot, a revolutionary figure who took over the business after her husband's passing and transformed it into a powerhouse known for its high-quality Champagnes. Enjoy a captivating tour of the cellars followed by a delightful Champagne tasting, savoring the renowned bubbles produced by this esteemed House.

Journey Through the Picturesque Champagne Region:

Board your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and embark on a scenic drive through the enchanting Route du Champagne. Wind your way through charming villages and rolling vineyards, marveling at the idyllic beauty of the Champagne countryside. As you travel, you'll have the opportunity to admire some of the most famous "Grandes Maisons" (renowned Champagne Houses) from afar, such as Bollinger, Gosset, and Deutz. Keep your eyes peeled for the picturesque Grand Cru villages that dot the landscape, including Ay, Hautvillers, Bouzy, and more.

Optional Champagne Pairing Lunch (Grand Cru Village of Ambonnay):

For an exclusive experience, opt for the additional lunch option at a local family-owned property in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. The Foureur family, wine growers since the 16th century, welcomes you to discover their passion for Champagne making. Enjoy a delectable lunch where each course is thoughtfully paired with their exceptional Champagnes, offering a true immersion into the art of food and wine pairing.

Family-Owned Winery Visit & Tasting:

Continue your Champagne exploration with a visit to a charming family-run winery established in 1875 in the Marne Valley. Meet Laure and David, the fifth generation of passionate winemakers, and learn about their dedication to traditional and ancestral methods. Explore their cellars and discover their unique "Plaisir d'Antan" Champagne, crafted with 100% Chardonnay and aged in oak barrels for a distinctive flavor profile. Conclude your visit with a delightful tasting, savoring the fruits of their meticulous craftsmanship.

A Tailored Experience:

Remember, this is a private tour! Feel free to discuss your preferences with your guide. Perhaps you'd like to swap a winery visit for a stop in the historic village of Hautvillers, where the legendary Dom Perignon is buried. Your guide is happy to personalize the itinerary to create a truly unforgettable experience that aligns with your interests.

Return to Reims:

Following your final Champagne tasting, relax and reminisce about your day as you return to your Reims hotel, where your guide will kindly drop you off.

Please note: In the event that a specific Champagne House is unavailable, a similar one will be substituted to ensure a fulfilling experience. You may also share cellar visits with other guests, a common practice to enhance the overall enjoyment for everyone.

Book your private Champagne adventure today and create lasting memories in the heart of this sparkling region!
