Epernay, Champagne – the heart of the sparkling wine!
1 hour 10 minutes train runaway from Paris and you’re in the heart of the sparkling wine..This trip is to Epernay, the capital of Champagne region in France, where you will have an astonishing atmosphere of champagne boutiques, bars and mansions of the leading producers, for which you can arrange guided tours to visit.
Once you enter the town, you pass by the magnificant mayor building, which is actually the old building of Moet & Chandon, see the town hall and come to the beginning of an endless road of “champagne houses” – L’Avenue de Champagne..
First Moet & Chandon’s Dom Perignon welcomes you. Then all the leading producers come one by one as you pass by magnificant mansions with famous labels.
Suggest you to check the availability and open times of the champagne producers for arranging the champagne tours because not all of them are open all weekdays! You can find the necessary information below:
In my daily tour I visited the champagne cellars of Mercier. Going down to the cellars with a panoramic lift, a train vagon takes you to the champagne bottles beneath the town!
