Location Trelou-sur-Marne

Join us for an exclusive day with one of my favourite champagne producers. She will guide us on a 2 hour hike through the vineyards in the Vallée de la Marne, bring us back to picnic on her estate, then give us a tour of her cellars.

Hike and Picnic in Champagne

Hike and Picnic in Champagne


This trip is exceptionally open to families, but children must be able to hike (and obviously won't be able to drink champagne if they are under 18). Sandrine, the champagne producer, might rent a bouncy castle for the day to keep the younger children entertained while the parents sip their champagne.
