Excellent tour - a really great insight into Champagne, the art, the science - and of course the many tastes. Even if you're not certain you like Champagne, well worth the trip. Stephane and his wife are great hosts, with very good English and a warm hospitality. Highly recommended, and won't hesitate to return.

Our day with Stephane was wonderful! He probably has enough knowledge of champagne (the product and the region) to start his own house, but we felt lucky that he chose to be a tour guide instead. Stephane made us feel comfortable instantly, and welcomed our endless questions. The houses he brought us to provided special, personal tours without any pressure to purchase bottles (even though we bought plenty). When we return, we’ll definitely be contacting him for another tour.

Stéphane is very pleasant, knowledgeable and comfortable to be with. He tailored a tour to my liking and wishes and was an excellent guide and interpreter. A home cooked, great lunch at his house was a nice start, and we later visited two small producers. This was a super contrast to the Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, where we spent our second day in the area.

I cannot say enough about this tour — Stephane was amazing and we finished the day feeling like we were part of Champagne! Stephane is so well connected and chose two smaller champagne producers. We started the day with a typical French breakfast (packed by Stephane) in a uniquely placed walled vineyard. Here we met Jerome whose passion for Champagne was immediately evident. We learned the entire process from start to finish and both Stephane and Jerome interwove personal stories as we toured the production rooms and caves. After a tasty lunch in a nearby village we hopped over to another Grand Cru village where we met Jean-Paul...what a character! Jean-Paul was equally passionate about his champagne but completely different in his production. It goes without saying that we bought 37 bottles between the two houses — no purchases were actually required but the taste was like nothing we have had before. We ended our day in Hautevillers for a taste in a larger champagne house. This is not necessary but we are glad we added it because we were able to compare first hand the difference between the smaller producers and a larger one - the smaller produces were exponentially better and we left this house without any bottles ;-). Stephane was kind enough to take us to Dom Pérignon’s Abby and gravesite as we were so close. In closing - please do not hesitate booking this tour. You expectations will be exceeded in every respect! Thank you thank you Stephane!

This was an incredible experience. Stephane is a charming and knowledgeable host, he made us feel immediately comfortable. His English is excellent, he translated easily between the champagne makers and us, so we could ask questions to learn about the process for each producer. The 2 producers he chose to take us we incredibly generous with their time and knowledge. We not only were able to see the facilities where the grapes are processed, we walked in the vineyards and sampled grapes from the vine. And the producers he chose offered gorgeous champagnes at very affordable prices. There is NO WAY we could have had this experience on our own. I would highly recommend this adventure, it was the highlight of our trip, we loved it.

This was the best day of our vacation. We spend several hours with 2 different Champagne makers, waked the vineyards and tasted some fantastic Champagne. Stephane was a fantastic host.
