Day 1

Relax with Standard premier Eurostar travel to France. Settle in to the luxury 5* Les Crayères for your 3 day Champagne tasting experience! This hotel is a serene chateau-styled accommodation built in 1901, beautifully maintained and surrounded by a seven hectare park with many varieties of hundred years old trees. This is a truly tranquil setting but only five minutes from the historic city centre of Reims therefore the perfect base for a Champagne tasting tour.  This afternoon visit the world-famous Veuve Clicquot Champagne house for your first introduction to Champagne, followed by a tasting. Explore their cellars and learn about the production process. Return for a five course menu by a world renowned chef at the two starred Michelin Le Parc Restaurant with wines carefully chosen by a dedicated sommelier.

Day 2

Today is a full day’s private champagne tour. 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.  You will visit three wine estates today including the famous Moët & Chandon as well as two boutique estates. Here 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 up to ten Champagnes throughout the day with a stop for a leisurely local champenoise lunch. This day tour includes a visit to the village of Hautvillers with the Abbey Saint-Pierre, where the famous Champagne wine was born where you will have a chance to see the tomb of Dom Perignon – the monk to whom we owe a thank you for all these bubbles!  End your day with a delicious three course dinner, with a glass of bubbly to start and accompanying wines in Le Jardin brasserie at your hotel. In the summer, most importantly there is nowhere better than sitting in their garden terrace!

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 while in the tranquil grounds of your hotel before returning home with first class rail travel.

We had a fantastic weekend in the Rioja region with Smooth Red; the Bodegas, hotel and mostly the tour guide were all fantastic. Everything was organised really well and we are already considering our next trip with Smooth Red which is a real compliment from us. Thank you
