The Champagne Region is just over an hour from Paris and makes an ideal day trip for wine lovers.  We will visit historical sites, drive through stunning landscape and charming villages and of course drink champagne!

Your guide will explain the historical origins of Champagne and the significance of Reims and its cathedral.  You’ll also hear the fascinating story of Dom Perignon and how he perfected the art of Champagne production.

Our first stop will be in the historic city of Reims, the capital of Champagne. We will visit the classic gothic cathedral and learn about its history and significance in the origins of Champagne.

DOM PERIGNON'S STORY
