Champagne is east of Paris, the closest vineyards to the UK, covering an amazing 34,000 hectares of land, which produce 25 million bottles of Champagne a year. There are many great reasons to visit Champagne at this time of year, it has the most northern vineyards in France, the average climate ranges from 11°C - 12°C giving great growing climates, it has the perfect soil for growth of the grapes and the scenery of the vineyards are beautiful as there are many hill slopes so you can see for miles.We've chosen our 3 best wine tours from Budget to Luxury so why not treat yourself to a great weekend away and bring back a bottle... or seven! Hic!Budget: If you want a good 2 days away then Champagne Escapes offer a great deal for those on a budget.

    Auto Europe do not encourage or condone drinking and driving, we therefore recommend finding accommodation close to the vineyards to allow the most enjoyment for the trip.
