Highlight your visit by sabering your bottle of champagne from family producers in the village of Aÿ !


Sabering means opening a bottle of champagne while using a sword. It's an art in Champagne and I will introduce you to this tradition. After sabering, you can fully enjoy your sabred bottle on site in a friendly atmosphere with discovery of the art of serving champagne and tasting tips. The tasting will be accompanied by Biscuits roses from Reims.
