This small-group tour is limited to 11 people to ensure more personalized attention from your guide.
What You Can Expect
Learn about the main wine regions of France so you'll know the difference between a Bordeaux and a Burgundy. Hear about the complex process of making Champagne. Pick up French wine terms so you can understand French wine labels, and review the art of proper wine tasting.
Of course, the highlight is tasting good organic French wine! Your guide will offer you generous servings of six French wines -- including a white, a rosé, three reds and a Champagne (see Itinerary for sample selections). Sip your wine and snack on olives and bread with your small group. The laid-back, intimate atmosphere makes it easy to ask your guide any other questions you may have about French wine.
By the time your 1.5-hour wine-tasting class in Nice comes to a close, you'll feel confident about going out to dinner and ordering French wine like a pro.

An excellent experience! This is by far the best wine tasting that I have done in France. Ewan, our sommelier, is very knowledgable and personable. The wine and champagne selections provided a diverse selection of the regions in France as well as being high quality. I highly recommend this experience and it is fabulous value for money.
