Tour through the various stages of production as you wander through the cool, subterranean cellars with your guide. The cellars also are home to a museum on the history of champagne and the winery. One of the highlights of the House of Mumm is the Foujita Chapel, designed by artist Tsuguharu Foujita in the 1960s and decorated with his frescoes. At the end of your tour, taste the world-famous Cordon Rouge and Cordon Rouge Vintage, or Mumm Grand Cru and Mumm Brut Rosé.
