Grape picker for a day

Grape picker for a day

During the harvest, Champagne is in turmoil. More than 100,000 grape-pickers work in the vineyards to harvest the grapes, 100% by hand.

It’s a real experience to take part, at least once in your life, in these “old-fashioned” harvests, to discover the starting point for champagne production, and to share convivial moments with the winemaker who welcomes you to his farm.

The experience
in a few words

To help you live and discover this experience, the Office de Tourisme du Grand Reims and the Vignerons Indépendants have created “Vendangeur d’un Jour”, a sparkling product that includes :

  • Welcome to the estate by the winemaker to discover the history and terroir of the estate
  • Grape picking
  • Visit the press and taste the freshly pressed grape juice
  • Visit the cellars
  • Tasting of a flute of Champagne in the vineyard or at the end of the tour
  • Presentation of a diploma and a few bunches of harvested grapes

Where and when to harvest

Winegrowers from the various winegrowing regions of the Champagne appellation (Massif de Saint Thierry, Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Côte des Blancs, Coteaux Sézannais et du Petit Morin, Côte des Bar, Coteaux Vitryats) are taking part in the operation. As the harvest lasts almost a month, depending on the geographical area, this will increase your chances of participating.
