Although Reims has a modern day feel, it is a city steeped in history. On what was formerly a 4th century Roman chalk quarry, and later the site of The Saint Nicaise Abbey run by 13th century monks, Champagne Taittinger now makes it mark on history and wine making.

Although many champagne houses in Reims offer tours, the Champagne Taittinger tour is excellent and available on a walk-in basis. Tours are offered in English as well as French, morning and afternoon. Check local listings for the tour schedule.
