Champagne November 2017

Did you know that Champagne wasn’t first produced in Champagne? Another interesting fact: a stunning 4-star hotel right in the centre of Reims made a great base for our tour. There were so many highlights. A visit to the Grande Marques to see their extensive wine cellars. And even more interesting were the visits to the smaller family producers for some interesting conversations & the opportunity to buy excellent quality champagne at superb prices. Just in time for those Christmas & New Year gifts. And speaking of the festive season, we also visited the Christmas Village. There were street entertainers, magicians, carol singers and over a hundred colourful chalets welcomed us with their gifts, decorations and delicious festive fare. It was merry indeed.

“A wonderful trip. Everything I imagined and more. Great host, fantastically organised. Great Driver got us everywhere we needed to be on time. Amazing company, food and champagne .. what more could one ask for?! Oh and a really good choice of hotel. Thanks so much Christos!”

“A fabulous weekend in Champagne with an organised and knowledgeable tour leader, great group of people, excellent tours and tastings throughout the weekend, opportunities to visit the festive Christmas market and dine at a Michelin Star restaurant. I’m already thinking of the next one.”
