For our silver wedding we decided to visit Champagne houses in Reims and Epernay. This was a great experience and Ruinart was outstanding. You are made to feel special and our guide/host was Kelly she was brilliant and very passionate about Ruinart. We expected to be there 2 hours it was more or less all afternoon as they want to...

This was hands down the most educational, historically interesting, and enjoyable "tour" we had. Unlike other reviews, I had no problems whatsoever making the booking, paying for it, or receiving a timely confirmation. Our guide, Kelly, was very knowledgeable about the house, the history of the area, the champagne making process, and showed us some amazing areas underneath Ruinart, including... More

We love Ruinart and were glad to be able to get a chance to tour. It ended up being a private tour. Perfect history, process of champagne-making, and a very detailed enjoyable tasting of four of the Ruinart champagnes in an elegant room.

Very easy to book and with confirmation by email, confirmed just before the date as well, security on the gate expecting us, all very smooth logistically. Stunning buildings and the renovations were worth it. Kelly was a very informative guide, dealing fully with a wide array of historical questions about the area and history of champagne generally, not just of... More

The visit to Ruinart is very interesting about how they store the champagne through its various phases of maturing. At the end os the session there is an opportunity to taste vintage and non vintage wine - 2 glasses each. The guide spoke excellent English - sometimes this is not always the case on 'English Speaking' tours My only negative... More

Excellent tour, felt a lot more personal and less flashy/commercial than Moët. The cellars are very deep and cold. Bring a jacket! Comes with a much higher price tag but if you love their champagne, worth every dollar. Love the Blanc de Blanc.

Had a tour of Ruinart with Kelly one weekend in August 2014 and it was fantastic. There was a mix of information about the history of the brand, the champagne making process and the Champagne region. We had a guided tasting at the end of the tour where you can select a vintage and non-vintage glass of champagne. Great afternoon!

My two sons visited Ruinart on our way to Paris and they were both thrilled by the visit. The guide (Kelly) was charming, very knowledgeable and professional. The group was quite small (8 persons) thus quite easy to ask questions. The reservation through the website is quite efficient and quick, however the credit card details are to be sent by... More

We were 5 adults and 2 children (ages 6 & 8) and we had a wonderful private tour of the cellars and then a tasting. When you arrive you are shown to a tasting room first, beautifully decorated with couches, chairs, and a tasting bar. This was very convenient to leave bags and the entertainment we brought for the kids... More

Had a wonderful opportunity to visit Ruinart Cellars recently. As an individual who has visited the Napa Valley 2 to 4 times a year over the past 20 years, I have just about seen it all regarding winery tours. Thanks to our host, Emilie P., this was probably the best cellar visit we have ever had. She was extremely knowledgeable... More
