My wife and I managed to arrange a one day tour with Christopher. He fetched us at 9:30 from our hotel and proceeded to take us on a magical journey through the beautiful villages and vineyards surrounding Epernay and Reims. His knowledge of local history especially the wars, and the production of champagne, was excellent, interesting but not in your face. He also took us to two absolutely brilliant local champagne producers in beautiful locations where we enjoyed visits to caves, tasted the champagne itself and met the producers (by luck).
This tour is completely different to the commercial (and must do) tour of Moët & Chandon. We really enjoyed ourselves, felt we had got a broader idea of this beautiful area and how it works whilst tasting some really good boutique champagnes at the same time. We also asked him to let us see the Cathedral in Reims which should not be missed. Tip: ask questions - he has the knowledge but won't try and show how much he knows. Great experience and recommended to those who don't have a long stay planned in the region.
