VIP Day Trip to Champagne with a Wine Expert
We booked the VIP Champagne Tour with Michel and it was a top highlight of our trip to Paris. Michel communicated with us before the day to get details worked out, and was so fun to spend time with. He has this experience dialed in to make the whole day a fantastic experience. We have so many amazing pictures from the day, and learned a ton about champagne, and an incredible amount about the entire region. The tastings were great, and setup in such a way that you are learning while also enjoying delicious champagne. The place we stopped for lunch was fantastic, as was the bottle of wine we paired with it. The Reims Cathedral was stunning to end the day before our trip back to Paris. This isn't the cheapest tour, but I can say after the experience I felt it was worth every penny!!!
Hindsight 20/20 - Things I know now after the experience
#1 - Purchase 1-2 bottles at the artisan vineyard - It is an incredible value for the quality. We still regret not getting some. Don't make the same mistake.
#2 - Wear practical shoes, as you will walk in the fields with grapes. Pack a light jacket as you will be outside in the morning and most likely in a wine cellar.
