An Electronic Tour Guide In Your Phone

An Electronic Tour Guide In Your Phone
Digitally discover the secrets of the Champagne region

champagnedayappNeed a guide in the Champagne region? Don’t worry. There’s an app for that.

Called Champagne Day, it’s a guidebook, tour guide, and private concierge, all wrapped into one little app.

If you’re planning a trip to the region or are there already and didn’t do enough planning before you arrived, you can download the app for $12.99. Once it’s on your iPhone, you can access information about:

• Tours and Tastings
• Restaurants
• Places to Stay
• Culture and Heritage
• Activities
• Special Regional Events

There are maps, contacts, videos and GPS coordinates for all of the wineries you might want to visit. Punch in the day you want to visit, and the exact times that specific wineries are open will appear.

Champagne region ambassador, Yvonne Halling, came up with the idea and has written a book on the region. With its personalized approach, the app is full of contacts she made living in the Champagne region over the past decade and a half.
