This was just an absolutely fabulous tour. Having already been to Veuve Clicquot and Moët, you might think what else there would be to see. However, Ayala was an essential part of the jigsaw puzzle and it felt more like we were members of the Ayala family being taken around. This was a very personal tour that showed you elements of their champagne making process that you just won’t see on other tours. We even saw the wine being bottled after the first fermentation before being cellared. And the five Champagne tastings at the end were so good we bought one of each! Thank you so much too, to the lovely lady that took us on our tour. She was knowledgeable, passionate and really made this tour the success we felt it was.
C'était juste un tour absolument fabuleux. Ayant déjà été à Veuve Clicquot et Moët, vous pourriez penser à ce qu'il y aurait d'autre à voir. Cependant, Ayala était une partie essentielle du puzzle et nous avions plutôt l’impression de faire partie de la famille Ayala. Cette visite très personnelle vous a montré des éléments de leur processus de fabrication du champagne que vous ne verrez pas lors d'autres visites. Nous avons même vu le vin être mis en bouteille après la première fermentation avant d'être mis en cave. Et les cinq dégustations de champagne à la fin étaient si bonnes que nous en avons acheté une de chaque! Merci beaucoup à la charmante dame qui nous a accompagnés lors de notre visite. Elle était bien informée, passionnée et a vraiment fait de cette tournée le succès que nous avons ressenti.
