Champagne is not just the famous “houses”. Champagne is above all the small producers who make wine with passion and enthusiasm. The two largest (world famous) producers make 30 and 12 million bottles annually. Large-scale. That is one of the reasons why, on our travel program, we mainly have producers that you might not be familiar with (unless you have read our book about Champagne).

Most of the wineries we visit are family producers. You may be invited to lunch at the home of the owner, in their dining room. Or get a walk in the vineyard, where they have planted trees for better biodiversity and have planted all seven (yes!) permitted grape varieties.

On the last tour we visited a producer where we met three generations of women winemakers, the oldest 99 years old. Quite different experiences than when visiting famous houses. And better wines. Join us on tour this fall.
