Which houses to visit with kids

Hi, we want to visit at least two champagne houses during our next European holiday, but will have two kids (5 and 7) in tow. Which houses will be most suited for a visit with kids. So far I have identified Mercier because of the little train, but would love some advice on other options.

Most champagne tours will be boring for young kids as they can go on for a while. Larger houses will offer tours in groups so bored kids may upset fellow tourists.

Alternatively, Epernay has three champagne houses who have opened up boutique/tasting rooms. This means you can pop in to taste without the lengthy tour.

By all means crack on with the Mercier tour and then consider these:

Janisson-Baradon: Top quality, smaller domaine basedin Epernay with a brand new tasting room/boutique on the roundabout at the bottom (opposite end to Mercier) of the Avenue de Champagne.

Collard-Picard: Anothet great quality, smaller domaine from Villers-sous-Châtillon who for about a year have had a tasting room/boutique about a third of the way up the Avenue de Champagne.

A. Bergère: Smaller house from Fèrebrianges who for afew years have had a boutique/tasting room (plus aaccommodation) about two-thirds of the way up the Avenue de Champagne.
