The interactive experience was interesting and educational. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I'm more of a red wine drinker myself, but I leaned to appreciate champagne because of this tour.

Modern museum that lets you look, hear, smell and of course taste at the end, so you know (almost) everything about how vineyards grow, are maintained and how champagne is made. Highly recommended!

What a fantastic museum! Fun, interactive and the people were wonderful. Tomas was especially helpful and made our visit special. Highly recommend!
