The tour includes a guided visit of the vineyards surrounding the Canard-Duchêne estate, (weather permitting), followed by an accompanied visit of a stretch of the 6km of cellars. A complimentary tasting (10cl) of Canard-Duchêne Champagne completes the visit.
The tour provides an insight into the art of Champagne and an opportunity to witness first-hand the historical machinery used in its crafting, including a traditional press, « pupitre », or wooden rack and corking and wirehooding machines.
The rich history of Canard-Duchene is recounted by our expert guides, who talk visitors through the maturing bottles at the heart of the cellars and a permanent exhibition dedicated to Champagne and specifically to Canard-Duchêne Champagnes.
