Vendangeur d'un jour® (day picker)

A real experience in Champagne! Reserve your tickets for this unique event of the year!

Vendangeur d'un jour® is ...

During the harvest, the Champagne region is in turmoil. More than 100,000 grape pickers are busy in the vineyards harvesting the grapes, 100% by hand.

It is a real experience to take part, at least once in one’s life, in these “old-fashioned” harvests, to discover the starting point of the champagne production, and to share convivial moments with the winegrower who welcomes us on his farm.
