Just about two hours west of Paris is a city known for its champagne and general splendour. The city’s called Epernay and it is home to many of the world’s most celebrated Champagne houses. Here is where you’ll get to tour cellars with tens of thousands of bottles of Champagne that are aging to perfection for a future celebration.
Once you are done touring the cellars, you’ll even have the opportunity to taste the bubbly that you just watched being created. Epernay is an ideal destination for the traveller looking to unwind and enjoy the finer things in life, or more specifically, in France.
No one can debate the unofficial motto of Epernay—that it is the Champagne capital of the world. What with the number of famous Champagne houses, the enormity of the city’s collection of champagne bottles, and a full-blown history of the production and marketing of the bubbly drink, from now on you will always associate Epernay with Champagne. Celebrate your stay in Epernay with a few tastings of the impeccable Champagne available to try.
