With a professional sommelier, taste several award-winning French wines from different regions in France such as Sancerre, Champagne and Bordeaux. Learn about the history of French wine, how to read a wine label, and the different wine-making regions in France. You can also purchase any of your favorite wines at the end of your tasting.
You have three options to choose from:
1.5-hour wine tasting with cheese and charcuterie lunch: This more in-depth session includes a tasting of five French wines accompanied by artisanal bread, cheese and charcuterie (cured meats), such as smoked ham from southwestern France and saucisson (dried sausage) from Corsica. Your sommelier will take you through the different wine regions including Rhone, Bordeaux and Champagne. Learn the art of food and wine pairing and discover expert wine-tasting techniques.
2-hour wine and Champagne tasting: Join this wine tasting and enjoy six French wines from regions including Champagne, Sancerre and Rhône, accompanied by fresh bread. Explore the art of food and wine pairing; learn how to read a French wine label and navigate a wine list; and uncover the meanings of commonly used terms like 'terroir' and 'appellation.' Your sommelier will provide great tips and plenty of fun anecdotes, too!
2-hour grand cru wine tasting: During this ultimate wine-tasting experience, try six of France's greatest wines accompanied by a platter of delectable cheese and charcuterie. The six different wines, selected from some of the country’s best wineries, include grands crus (a classification of French wine denoting exceptionally high quality), premiers crus (the second-highest classification level) and older vintage wines, all boasting rich, complex flavors. Your sommelier will be on-hand to answer all your questions, and the content of the class will be tailored to meet your needs and preferences.

This was a great couple of hours where we learnt a lot about the different wines on offer and also the regions they came from.
The wine bar had a chilled and relaxed atmosphere and the sommelier was very concise and knowledgeable.
We had the meat and cheese option which was another plus.
We would definitely do this again if we return to Paris
Great wine. Great cheese. Great setting. But the best part of tasting was Pierre. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Kind to everyone!!
Brilliant proper introduction to French wines. Amazing how friendly we all became the more we tasted !!
Our host was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
O chateau never disappoints. Get the cheese plate along with the wine tasting for a great meal.
Great wine tasting experience. The wine expert Daniel was engaging and informative and I walked away feeling that the event was both educational and fun!
Nice wine tour for wine lovers!
Yummy! The set up was gorgeous and the details of wine was highly informative. If you cannot go out to the vineyards yourself, do the next beset thing!
This was a good fun activity and provided some really good insights in wine tasting. The selection of wines was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the activity.
I have a complaint about the sommelier. She was very haughty. One of the first qualifications is to be entertaining, interesting and inclusive of the entire group. She didn't even pay attention to some of the questions I asked and was not trying to get the whole group together. I felt the other guests were more friendly than her. We had to ask her a lot of questions to get any information out of her. I think she should have gone over the basics at the beginning since wine connoisseurs are not going to come for this tour.
We felt we had to take this tour, being in Paris and wanting to sample the luscious wines. We enjoyed it, but the group was really too large, maybe 40-50 people, and it was noisy and disorganized, they seemed unprepared for our group, and we did get good information, the wine and cheese examples were good and delish-just wished it was a smaller group and more attentive.
