In a few words
Full day excursion to the city of Reims and its region, known all over the world for the production of a unique and prestigious product that needs no introduction: Champagne.

You will also visit Mumm cellar, one of the famous Champagne houses, where you can taste Champagne and admire the picturesque landscape of the region's vineyards.

Begin your excursion with a guided visit of the cellars of the famous Mumm Champagne house, where you will learn about their expertise and the secrets behind the creation of their many Champagnes. At the end of your tour, taste the famous "Red Ribbon" Champagne, one of the most popular Champagnes in the world.
Spend your free time exploring Reims city center and enjoy lunch in one of the many restaurants in beautiful Erlon Square, for example. Sample the many specialties of the region, such as "white pudding," a type of sausage from Rethel, Chaource and Langres cheeses, and the famous Reims pink biscuits.
The afternoon brings the chance to discover the surrounding countryside and its pretty villages, forests and prestigious Champagne vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. You will go to Mutigny for an experience in the heart of the region's vineyards. A local guide will welcome you and take you through the vineyards where he will explain the work of the wine harvest. This walk will end at the church of Mutigny, where a local producer from the Sentier du Vigneron will be waiting for you.
