Relax in an elegant wine bar in central Paris and begin your French wine-tasting experience! 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.

    This was absolutely amazing! We happened to book a day that no one else wanted so ended up having a private session! The wines were amazing, as was the food. Could not recommend this more highly!

    Overpriced for very small tasting..2 reds, 2 whites, and 1 champagne..maybe 4 ozs. of wine with nothing to snack on..should have included a cheese or meat tray without having to pay extra for it! There's a wine bar you can spend 20 euro and have a ball!! next time!

    Great experience! I love wine but didn't know that much about it, especially the history or how France named their wines completely different than the US and other countries newer to wine-making.

    -We haven and #39;t been noticed about the site relocation before the class which made us 15 minutes late for the class.
    -The wines that the class provided for tasting that didn and #39;t match my expectations. I can identify that the champagne is a very good one. Other than that, however, are disappointed.
