Chandelier light twinkles in your glass. You’re standing in one of the world’s most celebrated Champagne houses, tasting some of France’s most prestigious wines alongside legendary winemakers. Ancient steps beckon you underground to millennia-old chalk caves where the region’s marquee names—Krug, Ruinart, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot, Dom Pérignon—cellar their most precious bottles with a care mastered over generations. This is a one-of-a-kind immersion with deep and personal access, a masterclass in hospitality and fine dining, a joyful celebration of Champenois culture and craft — and it’s pure magic.
You’re traveling with acclaimed sommelier Rusty Rastello, wine director at three-Michelin-star SingleThread in Healdsburg, California. Rusty and SingleThread’s chef and owner, Kyle Connaughton, have crafted one of California Wine Country’s most impressive wine programs, the first and only in Sonoma County to earn Wine Spectator’s coveted Grand Award. Their connections to Champagne, to its winemakers and culinary artisans, are deep. This is your exclusive invitation to unlock the culture, cuisine and winemaking traditions with dosage tastings alongside iconic winemakers, private access to Moët & Chandon cellars and Dom Pérignon vineyards, and an afternoon at LVMH’s private Paris shopping salon with access to its rarest offerings.
If you travel to stimulate every sense, join us for profound private access in Champagne and Paris. Meet winemakers and artisans at the pinnacle of their craft. Celebrate and explore in ways few other travelers can.

Where We Sleep
Our luxurious boutique hotels are the perfect backdrops to indulge in France’s finest, mixing elegant character and timeless charm with the rich history of Champagne and Paris.
Domaine les CrayèresReims
Like a storybook castle, this château-style estate sits on 17 manicured acres in the heart of Reims. You can expect vintage hospitality—the hotel has just 20 rooms and a reputation for unmatched service—as you revel in the original artwork and regal textiles that adorn the walls.
Hôtel de CrillonParis
It's one of France’s most storied and prestigious hotels, located on the iconic Place de la Concorde with the shops and boutiques of the Champs-Élysées at your feet. This 18th-century palace turned five-star hotel was renovated top-to-bottom in 2018; master craftsmen and artisans have struck the perfect balance between the original neoclassical grandeur and modern whimsy and warmth.
