maison canard-duchêne

Are you ready to make the most out of this summer? Our Champagne House gathers summer events to provide you with a wonderful way to reconnect with nature! The Canard-Duchêne estate welcomes you to discover a variety of summer activities in the heart of the Montagne de Reims vineyards. What is our mission? To help you relax during your stay in Champagne. Respond to the call of the Champagne state’s inspiration and deliciousness through wine tourism…

Electric bike escapade & Cellar visit / Tasting

From June onwards, take advantage of this invitation to daydream thanks to a nature escapade. It is an experience to return to the essential, to simplicity, and to contemplate the beauty of Ludes’ surroundings while immersed in Champagne vineyards. Set out on an adventure on your own, riding electric bikes from the estate. Discover the charm of our 1er Cru village, nestled in the vineyards on the Montagne de Reims’ slopes.
Following a guided tour of our cellars, the House invites novices and amateurs to celebrate our exceptional terroir and the iconic Pinot Noir grape variety with two flutes of champagne in our park. The tour is free of commentary, and you will learn everything there is to know about our cuvées. From June to September, this activity is only available by reservation.


Yoga classes in the open air

Would you like to feel as light as a champagne bubble? Return to the present moment and reconnect your body and mind with nature in our magnificent century-old park.
Bring your mat and recharge your batteries for an hour with our yoga instructor in the heart of a spectacular vineyard and forest landscape.

After allowing yourself to be carried away by relaxation, extend the moment of escape with a tasting of champagne from our BIO P181 cuvée.
There are three possible dates: Saturdays, June 18, July 9, and September 3. Remember to make a reservation.

Sunny aperitif platters

Book your Champagne aperitif to enjoy a friendly and sparkling moment! From Monday to Saturday, June to September, we recommend enjoying your Champagne appetizer with the sun and a light breeze, or under the shade of the Domaine’s trees.
Come with your partner or friends in a festive and friendly atmosphere to enjoy a nice aperitif board (assortment of cheeses and charcuterie).
We will pamper your taste buds until they sparkle! Last but not least, the board will be accompanied by two glasses of champagne.

Champagne and flowers

An unusual wine tourism workshop, a poetic pairing!
This sweet activity will delight you with its discoveries at the Canard-Duchêne estate in Ludes, only 15 kilometers from the city of Reims. Did you know that there are over 250 different types of comestible flowers? You will learn how to make a delicate dish using numerous flower varieties such as borage, marigold, pansy, violet, and poppy… For a subtle taste match, pair this with a champagne cuvée. Allow yourself to be enchanted by an aromatic bouquet! You will be served three flutes of champagne made from rare and high-quality grape varieties.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, September 10th, at 11 a.m. This workshop can be combined with a visit to the cellar beforehand.
