Isabelle gave us a wonderful overview of the Champagne region around Ay and Hautvilliers. We did the half-day 3 hour tour. I learned a lot of interesting things which would be difficult to find out ourselves. As she is a very nice and cheerful person, it was also really fun. We did the tour in Corona times but everything went fine and we felt save. I absolutely recommend the tour if you want to explore the Champange region.

We decided to take this trip after having visited the Tattingier Caves in Reims. This time me and my friends wanted to avoid bands and their luxury taste and focus more on the experience and passion that comes with champagne making. We couldn't choose better than Isabelle to take us through some of the most interesting artifacts about these small champagne villages that we would certainly remember long. She was very very well informed and very passionate about her job. She knew in detail historical facts and more importantly, she knew very well the life of these villages. Lives that are so rooted in the vineyards, grapes and their varieties, champagne making processes, maturing time and methods, and champagne merchandise. And we met some of these lives some and we spoke to them and we could see their passion and their motivations to dedicate their lives to continuing this family tradition. It was impressive to see how this passion was inherited through 4 generations and still standing while looking at a little girl carrying bottles from one room to another or a teenager pushing a barrel bigger way bigger than him. Walking also through these villages while Isabelle explained the symbolism of many objects and places and many stories from those originating in folklore to more modern ones was a truly unforgettable experience. It was also of great pleasure to witness their sense of community. While driving her environmentally friendly car, Isabelle used to salute almost every single villager she saw. They smiled, waved, or saluted back like if they knew each other very well. Actually they knew each other for generations. and this is the beauty of this trip, it gives you a glimpse of how it is to live there. How it is to have champagne in your blood. I will certainly do it again and I want to bring my family there. In the same way, you wish to bring your most loved ones to places you know will inspire them and awake many wonderful emotions they have felt years ago or they have encountered in books or films.

The tour was just about the right length for us and the children. We got a really good overview of the whole Champagne making process from vine to tasting. Morgane was an excellent host.
