Sightseeing and wine tasting in Champagne
La Champagne is a region of timeless natural beauty. The name derives from the Latin ‘campus’, ‘campania’ or field. In Old French this became ‘Champaign’; today, Champagne.
A glass of Champagne never tastes as wonderful as it does when you sip it in the tasting rooms of one of the great Champagne Houses. If you are planning a trip to France, the Champagne region is a short, and very pretty, train ride from Paris. Whether you visit Mumm, Moët & Chandon, Roederer, Taittinger or any of the Champagne Houses, a tour is fascinating and the tasting at the end is guaranteed to present you with several of the top champagnes.
