It can be very cold in Champagne and sometimes snow contributes to road closures and more, potentially slowing down your visit.

Weekends tend to be busier than weekdays at most wineries in Champagne, so if you want more personal attention from your host or guide, choose to visit during a week day instead.

What types of wines do wineries in Champagne Produce? +

Champagne is a type of sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of France. There are four main grapes used to make champagne: white chardonnay, black pinot noir, pink pinot meunier, and red gamay. Each grape variety produces its own unique flavor profile and style of sparkling wine.

Chardonnay grapes can produce both dry or sweet styles of champagne depending on how long they are fermented before being bottled with yeast to create bubbles (sparkling). Chardonnays are considered dry when they contain less than 5 grams per liter sugar left at the end of fermentation or sweet when they contain 8 grams per liter sugar left at the end of fermentation.

Pinot noir grapes produce light-bodied wines with delicate aromas similar to berries like strawberries or raspberries that complement seafood dishes very well; Pinot noirs are also known for their ability to age well so if you have some bottles stored away in your cellar just be sure not forget about them!
