Where it all began...
It was 2009, and a university placement in Reims, France led English born Rachel to the Champagne region. In a champagne bar one rainy November afternoon, she 'literally' bumped in to her French Prince Charming, Alexis.
Alexis - the 5th generation of a family champagne brand called Wafflart-Briet.
Rachel - couldn't believe her luck!
Fast forward to 2019, and here we are now - living and working between our two favourite places. England and France.
Quite literally getting the best of both worlds, we now enjoy inviting others in to our 'bubble' to discover the hidden gems that both wine areas have to offer.
The South of England has some incredible vineyards and wineries, and with similar growing conditions to the Champagne region and a lot less regulation compared to champagne, these English producers are making the most of innovation and creativity whilst respecting their soil, climate and the traditional methods used in winemaking.
Champagne is of course loaded with history and tradition. There are thousands of small producers and many prestigious big houses too. The amount of champagnes you can taste is endless and even we haven't got through them all (despite trying!) The region is a simply stunning part of France and is easily accessible from the South of England.
Our aim is to bring both amazing wine regions to you. Whether it's through luxury private tours, tasting evenings, corporate workshops, day tours from london and full weekend trips, we offer a number of services that pull together the links between English wine and champagne in a 'local', fun and accessible way.
