The visit of the cellars of champagne in Reims

A tour of the cellars of Taittinger in Reims

Most of the major Champagne producers are located in the same area in Reims (Veuve Clicquot, Pommery, Taittinger...), they organised visits of their cellars for the individuals. The fee is about 20 euros, for this price you will drink a cup of champagne at the end of the visit. The visits of the cellars start every 15 minutes or 30 minutes on the weekend with a guide. Be careful, in the cellars the temperature is cool enough.
