Trip details

Day 1

Travel by Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais, and self-drive to the Champagne region. After settling into your hotel in the heart of historic Reims, relax with a glass of bubbles in the comfort of your accommodation’s trendy Champagne bar (not included).

Day 2

Enjoy a full day small group tour in the vineyards with a Champagne tasting tour. The day begins with a visit to Champagne Mumm or Maison Veuve Clicquot (depending on days of the week). Following the tour enjoying a Champagne tasting – the perfect way to start your day in Champagne. Your tour continues with a guided tour of the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Reims, after which you will head into the vineyards for a Champagne tasting lunch in a boutique winery. In the afternoon, your guide will take you to one more boutique Champagne house before you are returned to Reims.

Day 3

The following day your friendly English speaking wine guide will take you on a full wine tour to the nearby Côtes des Blancs and Grand Cru Village vineyards. Enjoy the scenery of the grandeur of the famous Avenue du Champagne in Epernay.  Today you will visit two estates including the sparkling and glamorous Moët & Chandon, this legendary brand is now one of the most expensive estates in the region . You will also visit a family run estate where you’ll meet the maker and be invited to explore their cellars, taste their wines and share their passion whilst you learn a few things about the production process.   You’ll sample at least seven Champagnes throughout the day and stop for a leisurely champagne tasting lunch in a nearby restaurant or another wine estate.  This day tour includes a visit to the village of Hautvillers and a chance to see the tomb of Dom Perignon – the monk to which we owe thanks for all these bubbles.

Day 4

The final day in the Capital of Champagne is yours to explore. Perhaps a visit to the gothic splendour of Notre Dame Cathedral, a final wander among the winding streets of Reims or simply relax in your hotel’s pool before returning home on the Eurotunnel.

Very well organised trip to Tuscany, getting in 2 wine regions. Lovely hotel with amazing view. The best part was our guide Paula who ensured our wine tasting tours were with smaller wineries which have authenticity and care for the environment. Highly recommend SmoothRed!

SmoothRed did an outstanding job providing chauffeured driven wine tour through Bourgogne and the Rhone valley (France). The multiple vendors they used were all Courteous, Prompt, and very fluent in English. This 7 day trip went without problems. I would highly recommend SmoothRed.
