What makes Champagne so special? You will have the answer to that after our tour in Champagne. You will learn through visits to both large houses and small growers, through fascinating tastings and 100 % champagne lunches. You will get to know some of the many small villages that make up the appellation of Champagne. They are surrounded by vineyard slopes, some of the quite steep.
In Champagne, France’s most northern wine region, the vines need all the sunshine they can get. Some say it is the chalky soil – also known from the Cliffs of Dover – but that is a simplification. Champagne has many soils, giving many different styles to the wines.
One also often hear that it is pinot noir and chardonnay that are they key grapes. Not quite true either. Pinot meunier is starting to get the credit it deserves for the great wines it can produce.
You will get to experience this and much more in Champagne with us.
