Say hello to the Holiday Season with a glass (or two) of Champagne…

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 the perfect place to visit at Christmas – Reims is said to be where the first French Christmas celebrations took place in 496 AD. Enjoy the exhibitions, gourmet markets, street animations, nativity scenes and parades during free time in the city. Fill yourself up with festive fare at the many bakeries and bistros that line the streets. Stock up for the festive party season – bring up to 36 bottles of Champagne back home by coach

Itinerary

Day 1 – Introduction

This is an extra special festive tour, beginnings with a sumptuous first tasting at our Reims hotel.

Day 2 – Marguet Père & Jean Milan

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.

Day 3 – Barnaut & Taittinger

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!
