As we are on the last leg of planning our upcoming trip to France, I decided to post for any recent feedback during our short time in Epernay. We have two nights here booked. Oct. 14th and 15th.
Arrive in Epernay early afternoon Monday, October 14th and visit some champagne houses along the Avenue. I haven't contacted all of them yet as to hours, but are hoping we can get into a few Monday afternoon. I do have a longer list of more if these aren't available, but won't put them in this question.
Moet, but sill have to finalize a time for a reservation, Castellane , Mercier, Boizel , Collard-Picard or Alfred Gratien
Tuesday October 15, leave in the morning and drive through some small villages around Epernay. Here's a tentative drive I found from others who have posted. Hopefully the routes and signs will be well marked, but we'll have a map with us if not. I do also have some restaurants in some of these, so hopefully can stop for a lunch or dinner along the drive before heading back to Epernay.
I had one more, I'd read about somewhere, but can't seem to map it in this area, so possibly I have the wrong name, but it was the little village of Haut Villiers - the home of Dom Perignon
Thanks in advance for any added suggestions. I have been having difficulty on the Epernay's tourism website finding out hours of operations for different places, so am still researching to find these before we go.
