About this experience & host

Discover 4 famous villages and vineyards classified Grand cru and 1er cru around Epernay as well as their historic hillsides classified as World Heritage by UNESCO with the visit of a family of independent producer / winemaker and several tastings.

Did you know that my village of Aÿ - just 5 minutes from Epernay and 35 minutes from Reims - was the main center of the Champagne industry and always has a very special place?
The kings of France had their own presses there from the 16th century and the wines of Champagne were formerly called "Ains Wines".

The historic hillsides of Aÿ are classified as World Heritage by UNESCO and the vineyard is classified at the highest of the appellation: Grand cru.
This is where I will take you to discover the historic village and its famous vineyard!

You will also visit other villages and vineyards classified 1er cru with exceptional panoramas around Aÿ: Mutigny and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ (Mont du Gruguet) and taste 3 famous local spirits: Ratafia de Champagne, Fine de la Marne and Marc of Champagne.

You will also meet a family of producers / winemakers (the good addresses of the locals :) who will open the doors of their cellar, their press and their winery to discover the process of making their champagne and its specificities. The visit will be followed by a tasting of course!

And do you really know who Dom Pérignon is? you will be surprised by the real story ... I will show you in the vineyards of Hautvillers where all his experiments took place and where the first champagne cellars he dug are located .... you will then thank him in the church where he officiated and where he now rests forever!

Hauvillers is one of the most charming and famous villages in Champagne, it is called the "Cradle of Champagne".
It is also one of the few villages with Aÿ where UNESCO has classified its historic hillsides as World Heritage.
