Fantastic tour with a small producer we couldn't have found otherwise
Dec. 2019
We had a great time touring and tasting with Stephane and his friend Jean Paul. Being wine growers ourselves we are always skeptical of wine tours but this was very special and we were able to really connect with Stephane and Jean Paul and have our more in depth questions answered. The wines that we tasted were very special and unlike what you would be having at other houses, we tasted vintages from (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Stephane also gave us some recommendations for shops, bars, restaurants, and other things to do in Reims during the drive back. I would highly recommend this tour!

Hello Paul, You can not imagine how I like touring whith skeptical people ! It's when there are a lot of precise questions and comparisons between the Champagne and other other world regions. It's thanks to you that we can see how different is the Champagne and why it is the king of the wine ! Come back when you xant for a full tour to visit more atypical small champagne winemakers. Cheers ! Stephane

A must when visiting Reims!
With a vast background in tourism and a passion for local champagne, Stephane is able to give you exactly what you are looking for: an honest visit to local producers without the marketing and branding layer you would easily feel when visiting a big champagne house. We had the unique experience of walking into a producer (Paul-Sadi champagne) who just presses the first batch of grapes after the harvest that started that day. This happens only during 7 days a year! Great experience, would recommend this to any visitor of the region who cares about the champagne making process.

So lucky you were to visit Champagne during the harvest. You tasted the grappes juice right pressed. Some lucky guests can also taste the wine in the tank before the bubbles creation. Vey funny to taste. Before the true tasting of course ! Best, Stephane

Small Champagne Producer Tour
Stephane picked us up at our apartment and drove us to a village in the Champagne district where we visited a small champagne producer. On the way he engaged us to explain some of the basics of champagne production and pointed out sights. Upon arrival he introduced us to the producer and we headed into the vineyard. We were fortunate to be there just before harvest so we were able to tase the two varieties of grapes and consider how they would taste in the bottle two years later. The producer did not speak English so Stephane translated. We then went into the facility where the producer showed us the entire process including how barrels are used to add character. The visit concluded with tasting the various champagnes he makes and the opportunity to purchase bottles at a great value.

A Wonderful Champagne Experience
Jun. 2019 • Family
I highly recommend this tour of a local (Reims) winemaker's cellar and the family's heritage of creating excellent champagne. My husband, daughter and I were given a private tour with a very detailed and interesting explanation of the champagne making process. We ended the tour with a tasting of some of the best champagne. And, the views of the valley and region were breathtaking - they even provided a rainbow for us on our way back to the town of Reims!

Thank you Daley for your reward ! I'm so happy the 3 of you enjoyed the tour. This private tour is a must if you want to meet people involved in champagne and making it by themselves. I'll tell him you found his champagne one of the best. It's true they are so good and different. The commented tasting is interesting to discover that it exists different champagne and to compare the traditionel champagne with the other ones. Come back soon ! I'll manage an other rainbow only for you :)

We did this tour in June during the World Cup and had a great time! We learned so much about the champagne making process and it was great to have such a small and interactive tour. The wine was great and we brought plenty home! Stephane was very knowledgeable and out together a great experience.

Excellent personal tour, great people!
May 2019 • Couples
Such a great time with lovely people - Stephane and his wife picked us up at our B&B - it was a beautiful drive in the countryside in their convertible as we headed to his friend’s champagne home, cellar and vineyard! We were greeted by Sebastian and his wife at their home - we walked through the vineyards and learned about the different grapes and the different champagnes they produce - then toured the wine making area and the cellar - the fact that this home and business has and will be passed down through family generations was so heartwarming to hear! We ended with the 6 of us taste testing several champagnes and sharing stories about our families and countries - they were all so down to earth and welcoming - such a personal experience and had a wonderful time! We purchased 3 bottles that we used for our wedding!

Thank you Sherry for your reward ! The private side of the tour makes it unique as you said. The tour is organised but can be adapt to each will. Discovering the champagne by meeting a true winemaker is the must if you want to understand well the process and overall taste with him his different champagnes. So intererting to have his explainations about each champagne. My friend is nice and welcome us in his private place. He only opens his doors for us :) I'm happy that you enjoyed his champagne for your wedding ! So great !

Great Champagne Tour near Reims
Jun. 2019 • Friends
We had an amazing experience with Stephane. It was very unique and special. He is definitely an expert in champagne. He picked us up from our B&B and we toured the vineyards. We then toured a local cellar and tasted the most amazing champagne I’ve ever had. We felt very special and it was a one of a kind experience!

Great Experience
May 2019 • Couples
This was our last day in Europe and what better way to spend it - seeing little villages and tasting champagne.

Stephan was a great person to spend this time with, good stories, awesome champagne knowledge and very accommodating and flexible. We loved spending time with a small champagne producer and learning about the process of production, and the tasting too of course.

I totally recommend this very personal and personable way to see beyond the big Champagne houses.
