I had organised the visit in advance and booked through the website. The cost to taste 2 glasses of Ruinart was too good to turn down. We were lucky enough to have a private tour and were very interested in the process followed by Ruinart. It was also knowledge we were never aware of that you should always keep the... More

Visiting Celliers Ruinart isn't exactly cheap (€70 per person) but worth every euro. The tour lasts about 2 hours and starts with some general information and historical background on Ruinart. Then you descend in the caves and get to know all about the champagne production process (or Méthode Champenoise). Finally, you get to taste what this is all about. They... More

It was nice to see the cellar and of course taste the Champagne offerings. A rather subdued outing but worth while.

Very nice place to visit and educate yourself in champagne tasting. This is the oldest champagne house. Nice visit in the underground cave.

What not to dislike about a Celliers like this? UNESCO site and its champagne, although the shop sells their champagnes more expensive than the wine shops in the town, otherwise, everything else is just fascinating. The tour guide is nice, friendly and cheerful. 80 Euros a person for a tour plus simple tasting of 2 of their champagnes.

This was a superb experience at the oldest of the champagne houses. The tour of the cellars was fascinating but it was the tasting which made the day; we were able to taste wines that would normally be out of my price range, including the 2004vintage blanc de blancs and an amazing 2002 vintage rose. I certainly felt that I... More

Unforgettable experience. Highly recommend Ruinart to anyone visiting Reims. We arrived very slightly later than planned due to the long journey, and were worried we had missed our slot. However, we met a gentleman at the gates (I believe his name was Cedric) who immediately greeted us, warmly welcomed us to the chateau, and personally took us through the tunnels... More

This is a UNESCO World Heritage site for good reason! Ruinart is the oldest Champagne house in the world, and the best tasting experience in the region if you plan in advance to get an appointment. The entire production and cellaring of Ruinart is done in underground "Creyeres"--Roman chalk caves that are as deep as 30-40 meters underground, dating back... More

This tour is so good all the others are a let down. Don't miss the chance to book this tour and you have to do this at least two weeks to a month in advance. The tasting after was also fabulous!

This was the best wine tour I've experienced. Only 10 people at max and you never felt rushed. As a matter of fact, we were there for almost 3 hours. The tour guide made each person feel very welcome and special. The house is beautiful and the champagne is superb.
