Trip details

Day 1

Set off on this self-drive trip taking the Eurotunnel to Calais (or with Eurostar rail travel), before making your way to the Champagne region. After settling into your hotel in the heart of historic Reims, set off for a wonderful visit and tasting at a world famous Champagne house, the perfect way to start your Champagne getaway! After the tasting take some time to explore Reims before relaxing with a glass of bubbles in the comfort of your accommodation’s trendy Champagne bar (drinks not included).

Day 2

The following day your friendly English speaking wine guide will take you on a full day private wine tour to the nearby Côtes des Blancs and Grand Cru Village vineyards. Today you will visit two boutique estates (and  the larger famed Moët et Chandon House), 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 superb Michelin star lunch, at the foot of the Montagne de Reims, this inn has an opulent style, an elegant setting for fine, classic cuisine with wonderful local wines!

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, before ending with superb tour and tasting at Moët et Chandon.

Day 3

Today is yours to explore the Capital of Champagne and wander among the festive Christmas markets (From 25th November to 29th December 2022), perhaps enjoy a mulled wine to warm your fingers. We recommend a visit to the Gothic splendour of Notre Dame Cathedral, or stock up on a few more bottles to take home to celebrate the big day. Why not enjoy an exceptional culinary journey with a memorable festive lunch at Le Jardin Les Crayères!

Day 4

Take this morning to relax before departing this wonderful city. Perhaps enjoy a nice lunch before returning home or enjoying a Christmas shopping spree in Paris!  (lunch and shopping not included).
