Wine Tours of
the CHAMPAGNE Region of France

Touring the land of BUBBLES!

Planning a wine tour in Champagne

when I first considered touring the Champagne region I though of the big international brand names and of Reims and Epernay - that would be where I would have the best experience and taste the finest champagnes. How wrong I was! To really experience champagne you MUST get out into the Champagne villages.

HOWEVER, you do need considerable guidance, or a lot of time, or a tour guide to get the best out of the experience.
