Grape picker for a day

The harvest is currently taking place in Champagne!

Book your experience to take part in this unique event in the year!

During the harvest, Champagne region is boiling. More than 100,000 pickers are working in the vines to harvest the grapes, 100% manually.

It is a real experience to participate, at least once in your life, in these "old-fashioned" harvests, to discover the starting point of the making of champagne, and to share convivial moments with the winegrower who gives us welcomes on its farm.
