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!
Amazing! Loved it. The demonstrator was very knowledgeable and great fun. We learned how to taste wine properly, and also learned lots about the different wine regions of France. The bread and meat/cheese platters went well with the wine. A great evening!
This experience was really enjoyable and informative - I have been practising some techniques since the session. The atmosphere was intimate and friendly, and I may have had too much wine. I would recommend the cheese platter for the session.
In one word Fabulous! Highly informative and delightful! We had a ball! We were able to get tickets for this tasting approximately two days prior as a quick substitute. The price was right and more than worth it! Thoroughly enjoyed learning and tasting all about the wines of France. You can purchase for 15 euros extra a platter of cheeses and meats when you arrive at OChateau -(I strongly urge you do so) to accompany the wine presentation. Water and bread is provided, but the cheese and meats are a nice addition. We were led into a cool cellar below the bar outfitted for seating approximately 25 people. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and funny. It was one of our best activities while in Paris. And we will definitely plan to do another!
Such a surprise that this was one of our favorite activities while visiting Paris! Justin, the sommelier, was an excellent host and teacher. We learned so much about wine tasting, production and the industry in general. We have been to many wine tastings in Napa and Sonoma Valley, CA, but have never felt like we learned as much as we did in this one. Excellent from start to finish!!
This was a great experience, and a wonderful way to spend our first night in Paris. The tasting room was perfect, and our wine expert truly was just that. What an enjoyable evening!
Guide was very well informed and was clear in his explanations. One champagne, 2 whites and 3 reds, so there was variety and enough to be able to compare and contrast.
The Oh Chateau class was great. Richard was funny and informative. I feel like I know a little more about wine; I'm no expert, but what he told us made us all feel a bit more confident with wine. Or maybe that was just the wine. Either way, a good time.
This was a BRILLIANT afternoon and Olivier is entertaining and knowledgable and the wines are delicious. Get the cheese platter it really makes the experience!!!
gentleman knew his wines! We had a lovely evening in a great environment downtown Paris.
Great. Highly educated sommelier and the wine room in the basement was beautiful. Location was a little hard to find.
Outstanding presenter. Delicious and well-selected wines and champagnes. We especially appreciated the large map of France on wall behind presenter so that she could point out the various appelation areas. All four of us would repeat this tour if we go to Paris again.
Justin was amazing!!!! You could tell he loves what he does and loves sharing the information with others. Tasted wonderful French wine and learned so much!!!!
This was the best tour, loads of information and wine, the sommelier was very knowledgable and the company ended up being loads of fun. Highly recommend this tour to anyone, no matter what your wine knowledge.
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Daniel, our 'guide' was an engaging, knowledgable speaker. The atmosphere was relaxed and convivial and the wines excellent. We learned more about French wine standards. Absolutely recommended!
The wine tasting event was well worth the time and money! It was a nice, cozy, friendly environment, and the host was extremely knowledgeable. The champagne and wine were delicious AND abundant. I highly recommend this event, and the price for a bottle or two is not bad.
