Highly recommend this tour. The tasting and class was held at a very nice wine bar and its was very informative. You will be taught about the wine regions in France and how to read a French wine label properly. The pours were very generous and water and bread was included but an optional meat and cheese platter was a wonderful addition. Glad I booked through Viator. I felt the pricing was better through them than paying at the venue.
Out of all the activities we did in Paris ( with exception of dinner on the Eiffel) this was the best. Gorgeous wine cellar, very lovely knowledgeable host, I cant remember his name however, Jonah possibly, American guy...Anyway, really good value for money as we were given a full glass on champagne on arrival, then further two glasses of white and two 3 glasses of red, then a wee top up at the end with complimentary bread also. Learned a bit and a few moves to bluff our way through another tasting :) Really good value for money.
