Follow the orange label to France for a Veuve Clicquot Summer Day Experience with Clos19. This tour option includes an inside look at the grape-harvesting process, a personal Veuve Clicquot brand ambassador guide, a private tour of the Veuve Clicquot estate, Champagne  reception, an exclusive private lunch at the Manoir de Verzy and private tour through the Veuve Clicquot cellars, actually classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This experience is priced upon application, but can begin around $3,600 a person.

 

Stick with a French state of mind and bring your group along for the Discover French Provenance in Bordeaux and Cognac tour, beginning at for $76,950 for six guests. The five-day tour is completely exclusive and a once-in-a-lifetime experience — which it better be, for that price tag. Learn all about French cuisine with your family, from food and drink to even dining lifestyle. One way you’ll truly know you’re in France in the lap of luxury, a trip to an ecological caviar farm is on the itinerary. Enjoy an interactive workshop, learning all about Belvedere vodka, and enjoy a cocktails and caviar pairing with a personalized gift to bring home.

 

New Zealand

Take in the breathtaking sights of New Zealand, while learning a thing or two about the exceptional wine-growing culture. Check out the Forage to Table: Taste New Zealand’s Natural Wonders, which is again, completely customizable, but tends to begin around $29,250 per person. Explore New Zealand’s South Island along a six-day journey, including that otherworldly beauty of the region’s famous landscape. Hop on a private speed-boat transfer to your Queenstown accommodations and enjoy some free time together visiting Central Otago’s growing art scene. One unique aspect of the trip exclusive to the tour is a full-day, private helicopter tour over the fjords, landing for a fresh-caught lunch only available through this tour.

 

Antarctica

One locale you might not immediately think, “wine!” — Antarctica is in Moët Hennessy’s experience offering list. Check out The Wonders of Antarctica with guest experiences, including airport transfers to your hotel from Cape Town, where your journey begins; private-jet transfer from Cape Town to Antarctica; a day at Atka Bay with resident emperor penguins; an option to tour blue ice tunnels; a visit to a Russian science base, followed by a stint in the sauna; Clos19 signature dining and tasting; and pre-arranged flights to the South Pole. All accommodations, private guides and transfers, as well as food and drinks, are all included in the tour. Already a dream destination for most families, why not add in the rare luxury of a wine tasting and fine-dining pairing in Antarctica.

 

Before the end of the tour, you’ll be an expert in Moët Hennessy wines, spirits and luxury experiences. Expect to be ruined for all other vacations.
