CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE: Tour Cellars and Pop Open the Bubbly!
Fabled wines; prestigious vineyards and family-run cellars; Gothic grandeur; and a UNESCO World Heritage site – the Champagne region of France awaits you! Visit the wine museum in Phare de Verzenay, a lighthouse watching over an ocean of vineyards; stroll the “wealthiest avenue of the world” in Epernay; drink champagne up in the trees at the Perching Bar; hike the Parc Naturel Régional de la Montagne de Reims; and more.
Ideally located near Reims, overlooking rolling vineyards and set among splendid gardens, Château de Rilly combines old-world charm, refinement and authenticity with contemporary comfort. Dating to the 18th century, the luxury hotel retains the character, story and soul of its origins as a champagne house.
The best way to experience the Champagne region is to tour the wineries and taste – bien sûr! – the local product! Your full-day small-group wine tours will take you to Epernay and Reims, two of the most prominent champagne-producing centers. Epernay’s main street is lined with opulent mansions housing the most distinguished champagne houses. More than 200 million bottles of champagne age in 70 miles of cellars. Reims, with its famous cathedral, is known for its Gothic grandeur and Roman remains, along with several Michelin-starred restaurants.
The three-hour guided vintage-bicycle tour is the perfect way to explore the area around Reims. Cycle over rolling roads through vineyards and villages discovering unforgettable scenic overlooks and places inaccessible by car. At the end of your adventure, sit back and sip champagne. Or, if pampering is your preference, enjoy a private spa treatment at Château de Rilly. Refresh, rejuvenate and offer yourself a moment of peace.
