The Ruinart champagne house is found behind large locked gates. The Ruinart sign which is shiny and mirrored sits on the wall next to the gates. At first look you know this is going to be a special tour. And it was. Just 10 of us. It was very exclusive. Our guide spoke excellent English. After the initial welcome in... More

This tour was pricey but worth it. Extensive cellar tour...the cellars are under the town and very old and very deep. The tasting was spectacular in both the wines and the ambiance. Our guide was a charming young woman. I learned a lot about Champagne.

One brief piece of advice is to ensure your name is on the list for a visit, other wise you will turned away at the gate. The most interesting visit of all the champagne houses. Ruinart is the oldest champagne house in the world founded in 1729. Our guide was fabulous, knowledgeable and welcomed questions. There were four of us... More

I visited Reims in July of 2015. I pre-scheduled this tour at Ruinart out of fear that everything would be booked up. ALL of the champagne cave tours in Reims require advanced reservations except for 1 place (see my other review). This tour was on the expensive side at 70 Euro per person, but for a once in a lifetime... More

We had visited Moët in a previous visit and thought that was fabulous. This was even better. We arrived by taxi and were driven through to be met by our host and taken straight into the waiting lounge while others arrived. The host was fantastic and very knowledgeable and keen to ensure it was a special experience for all. Learned... More

You have to book well in advance for this tour but it is fantastic. The limestone pits where the champagne is stored and its history are interesting in themselves . The guide spoke perfect English and described the history of the Ruinart family as well as the champagne making process. The champagne itself is outstanding and we tasted some of... More

Being a fan of Ruinart Champagne it was an obvious place to go for a tour of the cellars whilst in Reims. The tour has to be prebooked and paid by bank transfer. Whilst it isnt cheap to start off with the international bank transfer adds an unwanted additional fee and its a pity they dont accept cards. On our... More

This is an amazing tour; the chalk pits dug out centuries ago are truly amazing and deserve their status as a historical site. You hear mich if the history of champagne, in the hone of the oldest champagne house, and see it being aged in the original chalk pits. To round off there are two generous tastings of some of...
