Taste and learn more about this unique sparkling wine | wine tour Champagne

Share/like this post:

Champagne is a unique wine that only comes from the Champagne region in the north-east of France. Other places may produce sparkling wines, but they are not allowed to call them champagne in most countries (in the USA it is possible, under certain conditions).

What makes champagne so special, besides its origin?

It is a combination of factors: the northern latitude, the (mostly) chalky soil, the grape varieties (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), and the long ageing on the lees. All these elements contribute to the distinctive character of champagne. And of course, the producer. Making champagne involves following many rules, but a good producer can still express his or her personality in the wine. You will discover that if you join us at the end of September for a wonderful trip to this amazing wine region.

You will taste exquisite champagnes and enjoy delicious meals. And learn a lot.
