Day 1

Arriving in the morning, you’ll be taught about the terroirs and processes involved in Champagne-making as you traverse the Route du Champagne. A visit to Hautvillers and the tomb of Dom Pérignon will be swiftly followed by a stroll along Epernay’s Avenue de Champagne. Your first estate for a tour and a tasting will be at Moët & Chandon.
