Day Trip to Champagne with Girl Meets Glass!
May is full of holidays in France, why not use one of them as a chance to get out of the city! On May 10th, let's take a day trip from Paris to Champagne and experience the French countryside like never before!
You’ll meet your guide Gare de l’Est and take the high speed train together. During the train ride, you’ll get a crash course in Champagne to get you started on your bubbly adventure properly!
The first stop is Epernay, the town that has the most expensive street in the world, the Avenue de Champagne. It received this title due to all the priceless bottles that stretch for miles underground in chalk cellars. We’ll be met by our driver and luxury vehicle to whisk us away to the brand new state-of-the-art facility of Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte for our first tasting.
Back on the coach, you'll embark on the scenic Route de Champagne. Watch as the rolling vineyards drift by your window on the way to Hautvillers. Enjoy free time for lunch on your own, or take in another tasting at a smaller champagne house.
Back to the big houses, our last tour of the day will be at Veuve Clicquot, home of the yellow label. A guide will walk you through every step of the champagne-making process before visiting where the estate’s award-winning champagne is delicately assembled. Descend into their dimly-lit cellar and learn trade secrets on how to mature and store Champagne.
Whew, what a day! But if you aren’t tired yet, we may have a special surprise. Then we hop back on the train and return to Paris. With memories of an amazing day of wine tasting and quite possibly with stars still dancing on your palate, you’ll board your private coach back to Paris and ordinary life, happy in the knowledge that you have experienced this corner of paradise.
