France’s Champagne region, home to the world’s top Champagne producers, is a bastion of romance. From a private tour of the underground wine fermenting tunnels to a specialty artisan chocolate and Champagne tasting to a freshly prepared gourmet lunch, here are some of the ways you can have a romantic Champagne visit.
Arrange a tour of the famous Champagne houses (grandes maison de Champagne) to taste some of the world’s most sought-after vintages and explore picturesque Gothic towns and romantic villages.
Go underground and discover the man-made chalk tunnels (crayeres), which are naturally the perfect temperature for the key second fermentation that gives Champagne its signature bubbles.
Indulge with aphrodisiacs. Sip pink Champagne and sample homemade chocolates as you tour the scenic vineyards of Epernay with a master chocolatier and winemaker to show you the process.
For many, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Moët & Chandon, or Taittinger is the ultimate mark of a special occasion. No need to stop with a bottle when you can tour the grounds of the world’s most exclusive Champagne-making houses. Book a private tour to explore at your own pace.
