Visit exceeded all expectations. Excellent guide from whom we learned so much. Generous tasting with very good commentary. We shall return!
An exclusive tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Great to see the historical vines and cellars, and thoroughly enjoyed the tasting - especially the Grand Annee. Recommended
Walk through history
What a great experience, being able to walk down paths in in caves that have been around since the 18th century was just spectacular. Our guide was so experienced and gave us a true sense of what Bollinger was really about. We also enjoyed the fact that we were the only two people there and this did not feel like a tourist trap or money making experience. We would love to come back.. thank you again Bollinger house.
Interactive, personal visit with full of history
I didn't know what to expect when we arrived to this massive beautiful domaine in Aÿ. We arrived in a beautiful lobby where the guide Sonia sat down with us and explained the different pillars of Bollinger in a very pedagogic way. With a constant smile she passionately told us about her love for champagne, about her story, with lots of knowledge about the history of Bollinger. We went through the whole production facility and it was so interesting to see how they create their own barrels, where Madame Lily Bollinger used to live, and beaaautiful cellars. We ended the visit with an expert tasting where we tried all the cuvées except VVF. I would so recommend this house! Best visit I've had!
Bollinger Review - thoroughly entertaining
Went on a tour of the Bollinger site on 12/6/18 - this was an extremely comprehensive overview on the champagne making process from cradle to grave, including a tour of the manufacturing and storage process, and culminating in a very enjoyable tasting.
Compared to other similar tours, this one was far more in-depth, and covered more than the usual 'cellar tour' that you get in other offerings.
Tour guide was very knowledgable and engaging, and was keen to answer as many questions as we had.
Would highly recommend moving this tour to the top of the list of tours from other houses.
Ok, where do I start? Very well informed by the guide, excellent champagnes, very nice cellar tour. We felt very privileged to have the opportunity to visit this beautiful and well known champagne house, Bollinger is now one of our favorites! Many thanks to the champagne booking Team for having assisted us with all of our questions, we already felt the passion and excitement before getting to Champagne Bollinger. Highly recommended and we are sure to return to the champagne region again!
I recommend visit to Bollinger! We learnd many new things and really had the best visit ever.
Best private tour in Ay, a must see!
What can I say, the tour was absolutely amazing, got to see the vineyard, the maturing process and the cellars, and as for the tasting, nothing beats Bollinger! That’s now off the bucket list...
Glorious Visit. Highly Recommend
I came to Épernay thinking that I couldn't get into certain houses such as Bollinger. Serendipitously, we found champagne-booking.com and was delighted to find out we could get a tour to this world-class house.
When we got there, Robin, who generally does not do tours FYI, gave us a magnificent tour and tasting. We thought it was the best of the three houses we visited. We very much enjoyed the visit to the library, where bottles from before WWII could be viewed, though not tasted unfortunately.
A special thanks to Robin and the Bollinger House for welcoming us. My wife's favorite quote is now from Elisabeth Bollinger.
