Natalie is a great hostess, she picked us up in Epernay and then collected a Belgian couple from the hotel. She speaks great English but we wanted to practice our French (we are fluent but rusty) and she spoke clearly and explained any technical terms we didn't understand. She was very friendly and gave clear explanations of the wine making process and what it's like to be a small champagne producer in the region, including the full cycle of the process from planting the vines, to pruning in winter, caring from them as they grow- tying into place and then harvest. This is only the first part however so after visiting her vines in the field you go back to the house where they press the grapes, ferment them in vats, bottle them en-famille and then the riddling to the expulsion of the sediment and finally drinking! We ran over time as we had so many questions but Natalie was a great host and then dropped us back in Epernay at the end. Highly recommended.
