About this experience & host
This 2 hour discovery walk in the famous vineyard of Aÿ-Champagne (my village) near Epernay & Reims will delight you!
On the program, in the heart of the vineyards, we will talk about this exceptional terroir classified at the highest of the Champagne Appellation in Grand Cru and its history.
You will immerse yourself in the historic hillsides of Champagne classified as World Heritage by UNESCO and I will explain to you the work of the vine, the history of Champagne and its région, its elaboration process, the sustainable viticulture ... and there we we will certainly meet winegrowers working their vines !
We will also visit part of the village and we will stop in front of the properties and vineyards of the prestigious Champagne Houses of Aÿ such as Bollinger, Deutz, Ayala…
We will also show you the famous Clos Saint-Jacques from the Maison de Champagne Bollinger with its rare ungrafted vines to explain the vine to you before the phylloxera crisis.
Then, you will have well deserved to taste the 3 famous spirits of Champagne ( Ratafia, Fine of Marne, Marc of Champagne) produced by the Distillery Goyard of Ay who is the oldest and most important of Champagne.
I would take this opportunity to give you good advice, the "good addresses" of locals to visit and taste our winegrowers' Champagnes!
If you have children, another family option includes a treasure hunt and a tasting of organic grape juice.
Pets are allowed during the getaway if you want to do it with them.
