What You Can Expect

French Wine and Champagne Tasting in Paris

French Wine and Champagne Tasting in Paris

Spend an evening sampling the best of what France's wine industry has to offer during a French wine and Champagne tasting in Paris. Make your way to a beautifully renovated wine cellar in Paris' city center, not far from the Louvre Museum, and settle in for a French wine master class.

With guidance from a sommelier, you'll taste six different French wines from all over the country, including Bordeaux, Sancerre, Rhone and Champagne. Learn what makes French wines so beloved. Hear about how Champagne is made, and why it's long been considered the best bubbly. Find out how to taste wine correctly, what words like 'appellation' and 'terroir' mean and how to read a French wine label.

This 2-hour wine tasting is designed to give you a deeper understanding of French wines in a relaxed setting where you can actually enjoy what you're learning. Sip wine from delicate Riedel glasses and nibble fresh bread – or upgrade to add a plate of cheese and charcuterie for a more substantial snack.

At the conclusion of the tasting, you'll receive a list of all the wines you sampled, and you'll leave with greater confidence for the next time you're handed a wine list in a restaurant.

Fabulous class! Meg is very knowledgeable but not at all intimidating. I left the class excited to visit a cheese shop while in France and much more confident about selecting a wine from a restaurant menu. I highly recommend this class.

This was an amazing experience! The owner of this wine bar, Olivier, was so much fun! He is incredibly knowledgeable and taught our group the inner workings of the many wine regions of France. We tasted several types of wine from various regions. Delicious bread is provided but you can also purchase a cheese, meat or combo platter for 15 Euro that easily feeds 2-3 people. We booked this wine tasting for the day we arrived in Paris since it started at 5pm. It was perfect timing for the dreaded 1st day in Europe where your body hasn't yet adjusted to the new time zone.

Beautiful wine cellar and outstanding selection of wines to sample. Great journey through the different wine regions of France injected with tremendous enthusiasm and humor from our sommelier! Make sure to also get the cheese and meat sampling option. My boyfriend is not a wine drinker and thoroughly enjoyed this evening, we would highly recommend this tasting.

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.
