Full description

Visit a family-owned winery in Epernay, Champagne on a guided tasting tour of the estate and cellars. Learn everything there is to know about champagne alongside a guide and taste a total of three different champagnes.

Upon arrival at the estate, start by visiting the authentic centennials cellars built at the beginning of the 19th century. Burrowed under 25 meters of chalk, the whole cellar measures about 1.5 kilometers and has a capacity of 3 million bottles.

Walk with your guide across the cellar unit, the vat house, the underground galleries, and the chai while learning about these areas. After the tour, you'll get to enjoy your champagne tastings. Along with the tour and tastings, get to know the local wine growers that have passed down traditional from father to son for three generations. See how the family's members have maintained the family character of their Champagne House.

We were greeted by a knowledgeable young lady, who took us around the champagne cellar, and went through the process and history of this family run champagne :) Tasting in the end - lovely :)

This was a lovely morning spent at a family winery, followed by a tasting. It was very busy so it took quite long, but we were not in a hurry.

Top guide! Interesting, good guide who gave a lot of knowledge about the wine house and the history of the champagne house. Very good champagnes and we bought them to Sweden to be able to enjoy them at home.
