This family trip bubbles over with legendary names like Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot and Gewürztraminer. But have you biked vine-laced hills to the town where Napoleon enjoyed lavish soirées? Or pedaled alongside French canals, listening as they quietly flow by you? Have you ever tasted Champagne in Champagne? Oh, you will.
