Criterion Tours have organised several of these trips in the last few years and have excellent contacts with many small producers – the visits to them are always the highlight of the weekend and you can buy champagne from them at amazingly reasonable prices. So what better time to stock up for Christmas!

If you have ever wanted to visit this fascinating area, discover the secret of the bubble, and find out what makes champagne the celebratory drink par excellence, then this is the weekend for you. You will see the miles of cellars dug out of chalk where millions of bottle age gracefully, learn how champagne is made, and discover what makes it so special.

The town of Reims where we will be based has many other attractions including a stunning cathedral, and lots of lively bars and nightlife. Our hotel, the Hôtel De La Paix, is perfectly situated right on the main pedestrian thoroughfare where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

We will arrive in Reims late afternoon and go straight to visit one of the major Champagne houses for a tour and tasting in their extensive cellars. After checking into our hotel the evening will be free to explore the Xmas Market, restaurants and bars of the town. There may be the option to join a group dinner in a local restaurant.

During the next two days we will head towards Epernay and the Montagne de Reims to visit three family producers, two on Saturday and one on Sunday morning. These producers are all situated in the best villages and are hand-picked for the quality and value which they offer. At each one we will taste various champagnes from their range and you will be able to buy supplies at very attractive prices (the coach has plenty of luggage space!). On Saturday lunchtime there will be free time to wander round the town of Epernay.
