Day 1

Relax with two nights accommodation at a luxurious 5* hotel – a unique mix of gorgeous old mansion charm with a luxury modern contemporary interior,  with indoor pool, lounge bar and on site three-starred Michelin restaurant.  This afternoon visit the world-famous Veuve Clicquot Champagne house where you will enjoy your first ‘in the footsteps of Madame Clicquot’ tasting experience which includes two flutes to introduce you to the tastes and terroirs of this world-famous region.   This evening indulge in an unforgettable six course three-starred Michelin meal at your hotel’s restaurant with Champagnes and wines selected by the Sommelier. World renowned head chef Arnaud Lallement creates elegant dishes with complex blends of flavours using the highest quality produce.

Day 2

Today is a full day’s wine tour of the Champagne wine region. Your dedicated driver and wine guide will collect you from your hotel and you’ll set off to explore the  Côtes des Blancs and Grand Cru Village vineyards and points of interest.  You will visit two estates including Moët & Chandon and a family run estate where you’ll meet the makers and be invited to explore their cellars, taste their wines and share their passion whilst you learn about the production process.   You’ll sample at least seven Champagnes throughout the day and stop for a leisurely champagne tasting lunch. This day tour includes a visit to the village of Hautvillers and a chance to see the tomb of Dom Perignon – the monk to whom we owe a thank you for all these bubbles! We suggest heading into the town of Reims for dinner!

Day 3

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 pool of your hotel before returning home.

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!
