Opening a bottle of Moet always gives me that happy feeling - It is always to celebrate something fun or to share with friends and family, so when I was able to travel with the Moet team to visit the Champagne Region in France to see where and how Moet is actually produced & made.
We traveled to The Moet House Epernay and got to walk through the vineyards for the Moet grapes, explore the underground cellars (which span 28km!) where the bottles are all aged, have lunch in the garden where we drank Moet Ice Imperial that was especially created to be enjoyed over ice (so nice for the summer) and got to visit a room that was especially created for Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte - He was a great friend of Moet, so much so that he also built a replica of The Grand Trianon in Versailles for Josephine Bonaparte (one of my favourite historical ladies, she was amazing!) which we got to visit as well - It was breathtaking.
We then headed to Paris where we were treated to a Moet dinner with the most amazing view of the Eiffel Tower (a dream!) and got to explore the city with the Moet team.
I am definitely going to enjoy my next bottle of Moet even more after seeing how much work and love goes into each and every bottle! It is such an amazing process (invented by Dom Péringon who was a Monk in the 17th century, and who is the man on the wall at the entrance of the Moet & Chandon House) and it is all just so delicious!
