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

As we had been told on TA that if you did one Champagne house, Ruinart was the one to do. I tried several times, using a few different systems to send a request for reservation. We received a response once we got back from our trip (almost a month to respond). On our way from Pommery, we made the short... More

This was our third visit to a Champagne house in three days and although the most expensive, it was also the best. Ruinart is set in lovely grounds and the buildings are attractive. Our tour group was very small - only 8 people - which made for an intimate and informal visit and our guide was excellent. She was very... More

We were very excited to visit Ruinart as with a 70 euro price tag we expected to be blown away! The booking process was very difficult, no confirmation of our visit via e-mail and no one could help over the phone to confirm our booking! We had our hotel reception call and they just said to turn up and hope!... More

This was our absolute favorite tour in Reims and Epernay and also our favorite champagne. The tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable with fantastic English. The caves are the largest in Reims, quite beautiful and steeped in history as is much of the area. The champagne tasting was leisurely and educational and we loved all of them from the Blancs...

Went a couple of years ago. Warm welcome and a very interesting tour. So much history in those caves, from the Roman times to the present. And the Champagne!!! the best I have tasted and I have tasted a few. It was a trip I will never forget.
