Your Local Host:
I was born in Paris and lived there for most of my life until I moved to Bordeaux for a new job to work for a wine company. During my time here, I completely fell in love with Bordeaux, as well as Strasbourg and Reims, and truly discovered what we call in French art de vivre (the art of living).
The Champagne wine region is just East of Paris and is the world’s most famous wine region. Enjoy a tour through the rolling hills with a local expert guide who will teach you all about the region and its rich history. On top of this you will even get to taste what the region has to offer as you make your way around in your minivan.
