Originally from Champagne, I am passionate about my region and this king product that makes it shine around the world: CHAMPAGNE! I have been sharing my passions since 2018 for unusual tours in Champagne aboard collection vehicles that we have restored with the family. Being born in the capital of Champagne, Epernay, I know the secrets of Champagne, the Champagne region and I will be happy to make you discover this universe via my agency MY VINTAGE TOUR COMPANY. I love to taste wines and share convivial moments by learning the origins and history of each bottle. Today I would like to share my love for Champagne to you during a unique online experience!
