G.H. Mumm Champagne House

France, Part I: Booze-lovers visiting Paris should consider a day trip to the province of Champagne in France's northeast, where this sparkling wine is exclusively produced.

G.H. Mumm, one of the world's largest champagne producers, offers enlightening tours of its underground cellars, where the champagne is stored.

Learn about the grapes used in champagne _ Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Pinot Meunier _ as well as the long and complicated process of making it.

Bottles and bottles of bubbly, as far as the eye can see.

And at the very end, to save the best for last: champagne tasting. The 'demi-sec' variety is sweeter and easier to drink than the 'brut.'

G.H. Mumm Champagne House,
Reims, France.
