Discover the Champagne region of France

Every Champagne House is unique, each embodying a distinct character and style. Some Maisons, such as Champagne Taittinger, favor Chardonnay grapes to impart an elegance and refreshing quality to their Champagnes. Others, like Champagne Bollinger, predominantly use Pinot Noir grapes, which lend intensity and an exquisite, robust flavor. Your preference between these styles will ultimately hinge on your personal taste.

Reims, the largest city and capital of Champagne France, is a hub of this effervescent culture. Conveniently accessible from Paris, it is just a 90-minute drive or a swift 45-minute journey by TGV train. For those interested in exploring the heart of Champagne, booking a tour from Paris in advance is highly recommended.

The Champagne region offers a wealth of experiences: stroll through lush vineyards, learn about the unique soil composition, and meet the dedicated winegrowers. Explore a variety of wineries, from grand historic houses to charming smaller estates, each offering their own take on the art of Champagne making. To fully appreciate the diversity, consider visiting both a large and a small Champagne House. This way, you can compare the different characters of Champagne, enjoy diverse cellar tours, partake in various tasting sessions, and gain unique insights from expert explanations.

For seamless planning, Champagne-Booking stands as the world’s leading website for online bookings of Champagne Tours and Tastings. It provides a comprehensive range of activities at numerous Champagne Houses in the Champagne region of France. Booking in advance is advisable, as availability is often limited, ensuring you secure the most enriching and enjoyable experiences during your visit.
