Grape harvesting is an absolute fantasy. It’s something that you need to have done at least once in a lifetime. Mission impossible? Of course not.
1. Because you can go there as early as this week-end
2. Because it will only cost you 50€
3. Because this wonderful escapade is taking place in Champagne only one hour out of Paris on the train or 1h45 by car.
The pitch? A furiously earthy and glam immersion around the Domain of the Duval Leroy house!
Arrival around 9:30am for a long visit and a stroll through the vineyards under the soft end of summer sun and learn how to select ripe grape bunches. Then a luncheon with grape pickers around a big table with a nice hearty main course, appetizer, cheese ,dessert and a glass of champagne (here food is considered serious stuff)... and after a tasting of clear wines at the end of barrel you will depart loaded with bottles…happy…by car or train towards Paris.
" Journée Vendanges "at 50€.
