French Wine Tasting in Paris

French Wine Tasting in Paris

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 four options to choose from:

1-hour wine tasting: During this simple introduction to French wine, learn expert wine-tasting techniques while sampling three carefully selected French wines.

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.

The wine tasting was great, very informative and the host was lovely and very amusing. We stuck around afterwards to have a few drinks in the bar too, we enjoyed it that much!

We did this event with Richard. We was fantastic and made the event interesting and fun. I learned s lot but he presented the material in a lighthearted way and worked to make sure we remembered key points. Really thoroughly enjoyable.

The sommelier was very friendly and knowledgeable. No question was to silly and the wine tasting had very generous portions we received a full glass of each. They offer both cheese and charcuterie boards for 15 euros if your package does not include. With just one of each of these the wine and the bread we group of 4 had a filling lunch. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Beautiful day. I was a solo traveller and enjoyed very much. Lots of cheese and meats and bread. The wine tasting was great with a good amount of tastings definitely worth your money. Very knowledgable a little too much for me who is only starting to learn about wine but interesting.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This wine tasting was a great way to start our visit to France. We have been to several tastings over the years but never really learned as much about wines as we did in our 2 hours with Daniel. It was fun, entertaining and informative. The champagne and wine were great, too! We stayed for dinner at O'Chateau and it was wonderful as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was fun! Our host was humourous, adding further flavour and enjoyment to this one hour experience. We learned about French wines, had generous amounts supplied for tasting, and appreciated the décor of the wine cellar setting in O Chateau. Definitely do this - especially if wine-tasting is something you have never done in France!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Wonderful knowledgable host and sommelier and a generous charcuterie board to accompany an informative wine lesson.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it to anybody who wants to know something about wines. Our sommelier was funny, very friendly and had lots of knowledge about the wines. We have enjoyed every bit of it and have to mentioned that cheeses and salamis were delicious too. If am ever in Paris again will definitely pay the visit again. Keep up the good work.
