Day 2: Visit the estate of Bollinger in the village of Ay, for a full tour of their estate and cellars, and a tasting session of three Champagnes.
 
Next, visit a small, family-run Champagne House. Enjoy a tour of the property with the estate’s charming and charismatic eighth-generation owner, and see first-hand the fascinating Champagne-making process from press to bottle. You will also learn the Napoleonic art of Sabrage (the art of opening the Champagne bottle with a sword). Since you will each open a bottle you will then need to drink at least some of the Grand Cru Champagnes that have been opened. A 4-course lunch will accompany the Champagne, served in the estate’s dining room.
 
In the afternoon, you will visit a medium-sized co-operative, which produces excellent quality Champagnes from the Vallée de la Marne. Here, you will discover Champagne production on a more industrial scale, and your tour will conclude with a delicious Champagne and chocolate pairing experience.
 
Day 3:
Your first stop will be Champagne Veuve Clicquot. The Madame Clicquot visit includes a walk through the museum dedicated to the history of the House and the work of Madame Clicquot, a full tour of the House, which was built over the historic chalk crayères extracted by the Romans, and of the cellars.
 
The visit will finish with two flutes of the Veuve Clicquot Champagnes, including their Prestige Cuvée, La Grande Dame.
 
Enjoy a gourmet four-course lunch in a premium local restaurant. After lunch, before heading to Epernay, you will take a short detour to the famous hilltop village of Hautvillers, the “cradle of Champagne.” As well as admiring the spectacular views across the vineyards, your guide will take you on a tour of the village, visiting places such as the Church where Dom Pérignon is buried.
 
Finally, you will visit the largest and grandest Champagne House, Moët and Chandon, where you will have an exclusive Dom Pérignon tour. You will be visiting some of the oldest areas of the cellars which are seldom visited by the public and a tasting of Dom Pérignon will conclude the visit in an elegant reception room at the Moët mansion.
 
Day 4: After a leisurely breakfast, check out of your hotel.
 
Please note: This tour runs on 2 dates, Thurs 25th - Sun 28th April 2019 and Thurs 19th to Sun 22nd September 2019.
