We wouldn’t be Arblaster & Clarke without our Champagne Weekends. Over the last thirty years, we have discovered an untold number of wineries, and while destinations may have fallen in and out of favour and fabulous staff have come and sadly gone on to new and exciting things, we have always enjoyed these weekends. Just as each bottle has its own personality, so, too, do the seasons in Reims and Epernay…
This is an extra special festive tour, beginnings with a sumptuous first tasting at our Reims hotel.
The passion of the fifth generation producers at Champagne Marguet Père & Fils can be found in every glass. Don’t take our word for it, taste for yourself today. Sample the finest offerings of the famous Côte des Blancs region at the superb Champagne Jean Milan this afternoon.
We end the tour on a ‘Bouzy’ note at Edmond Barnaut’s regional house. We end our tour in style at Taittinger’s Château de la Marquetterie, nestled in the heart of the Champenois Vineyards. Don’t forget to stock up on Champagne for your Christmas celebrations!
