Epernay Champagne Day Tour Highlights
From Gare d’Est in Paris, it’s off to the Champagne region, where Dom Perignon, father of the house of Moet and Chandon, started it all. You will taste Moet in their splendid cellars. An option to do a Dom Perignon tasting (Moet’s top label, named for the Moet founder whose story you will learn) is possible on a private basis.
You’ll start your day with a drive through the charming Champagne countryside en route to Epernay.
First stop is the historic Moet and Chandon cellars where you’ll have a tour and champagne tasting. Next, another champagne tasting and lunch in Epernay. During lunch, you’ll learn all about champagne making, the main terroirs of the region and the development champagne varieties.
After you’ll see the Marne Valley and the former Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers, where Dom Perignon is buried. Lastly, with over 1,000 small producers in the region, no visit to Champagne is complete without a tour and tasting at a small family-owned vineyard.
The early evening train back to Paris completes the day.

|Why we love the Champagne region – Epernay is the cutest town, with the added bonus of having miles of Champagne cellars under the sidewalks. The statue of Dom Perignon, outside Moet, beckons you in to taste and tour. My kind of monk! Added bonus that you see bottles that had been kept aside for Napoleon. – Laura, LinkParis.com|
