The bubbly stuff

Only wines produced in the region of Champagne can use the C-word on their product. There’s no better place to find out what all the fuss is about with champagne and develop a taste for the stuff than in the region that gave birth to it, and there are no shortage of places to try it. By the way, anything labelled ‘California champagne’ is not really champagne – it’s the American version of sparkling wine.

Fancy food

If you want to treat yourself to something special on the culinary side of things, then try out the Boyer-les-Crayeres on Henri-Vasnier street in Reims – regarded as one of the best restaurants in the city, it is run by world famous chef Gerard Boyer.
