Why Visit Champagne?

Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Moët & Chandon. The sparkling wines of Champagne are some of the most famous wines in the entire world. Could there be a better place for a wine tasting holiday? Champagne produces around 360 million bottles of iconic bubbles each year! A staggering 50 million of which find their way to the UK and USA alone! This legendary sparkling wine is one of the most instantly recognisable symbols of celebration and joy, elegance and opulence, and for centuries it has been our go-to drink for celebrating life's special moments. If you’re planning a wine tasting holiday, Champagne needs to be top of your list! 

The heart of the region, surrounding the charming towns of Reims and Epernay, produces more than two-thirds of all champagne and this is where you’ll find the big-name Champagne houses of Moët & Chandon, Pol Roger and Perrier Jouêt; Veuve Clicquot, Lanson and Roederer to name just a few. Take a stroll along the famous Avenue De Champagne, stopping to visit one (or more) of these iconic producers and sample some of the finest champagne on a guided wine tasting tour.  
If you have more time, explore further afield to the less-well known areas of Vallee de La Marne where the Pinot Meunier grapes reign supreme, and La Cote des Bar (also known as the Aube region) where you can cycle between the wineries

We understand that most visitors (us included!) are lured to Champagne by the world-famous wine, however the region is rich in history. Reims is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the magnificent Cathedral of Notre Dame where 25 French Kings were crowned. Below ground is equally impressive and historically fascinating: hundreds of kilometres of centuries-old tunnels link chalk-walled cellars that sheltered locals during the two World Wars. Winerist can arrange private and small group tours that combine wine tasting with historical highlights.  

A few tips to consider when planning your champagne house visits. Most champagne houses and growers don’t accept visitors without an appointment, and only receive visitors on week days. Avoid making appointments between 12 & 2pm and allow plenty of time for each appointment. We suggest two champagne houses in a day or visits to three growers.
