We had an enjoyable time. The wines offered represented key wine making areas of France and we learned a lot.
Excellent experience. We had read about O'Chateu and didn't realize this was the tasting location until after our booking - added bonus! Highly informative and delightful! Thoroughly enjoyed learning and tasting all about the wines of France. Bread and water are provided, but you can add a cheese and/or meat platter for an additional 15 euro when checking in - a good idea. The tasting is in the cellar with 1champagne, 2 whites and 3 reds, so there was a nice variety. Our sommelier was excellent! but we were unfortunately his last class as he is moving to Asia. Highly recommend.
great wine tasting! Entertaining, informative. It was fun.
This tour was amazing and it helped me to be able to order wine from a menu without getting confused over the names
This tour was the best. One of my favourite parts of visiting Paris. The man who led our tasting was fantastic, very knowledgeable and entertaining. The atmosphere of the wine cellar was also an added bonus.

Our sommelier, Richard, was enthusiastic and entertaining while imparting a lot of information about the wines of France. A fun activity!
First class. I cannot fault this one bit. We had a knowledgeable, friendly, and witty sommelier. The wines were good, and the information we learnt about French wine was at the perfect level of detail. It was an excellent evening!
Great time and learned many valuable tips for future wine consumption. Nicholas was an excellent instructor!
