An illustrious region by any standards, Champagne fosters a prestigious name and the charisma to match. A patchwork of vineyards, villages and cities, Champagne quite literally sparkles. From cellar visits to Michelin-starred restaurants, of which there are many, days of indulgence are counter-balanced with forest hikes, lake sailing and 5000 kilometres of sign-posted footpaths. Alsace is a popular tourist region for the same reasons it produces the finest wines; dry days and long summers. Bordering Germany and flirting with Switzerland, influence is notably in the Riesling and Gewürztraminers, as well as the enchanted forests, fortified castles and medieval townships.
Tour the most famous Champagne houses or select one. Stand out favourites include Veuve Clicquot or Mumm followed by a visit to the Grandes Maisons de Champagne. The perfect place to enjoy a fabulous lunch of local specialties and more bubble samplings. A must-visit is the Notre-Dame de Reims, a UNESCO listed cathedral and a stunning Gothic masterpiece.
Stroll down Epernay’s main boulevard, reputed to be the world’s most expensive street. Drive through the picturesque vineyards and villages along the Route du Champagne, stopping for a visit at Dom Perignon and perhaps the most famous of all, Moet & Chandon.
Where the Rhône and Saône rivers meet close to the French Alps, has long been a European crossroad. The city is sprinkled with multi-Michelin star restaurants and with bouchons, family-style bistros offering the best of local cuisine. Pork is a speciality as are sausages but also on the menu are wild game, poultry and soft cheeses. .
Discover the beauty and richness of the Beaujolais landscapes, while
wine tasting in traditional cellars. Visit the Golden stone villages in the south before lunch and in
the afternoon, visit the famous Crus du Beaujolais district for more tasting with a local wine maker.
