Our teacher/apartment owner was extremely knowledgable and made the whole experience quite entertaining. This was in a wonderfully quaint Paris apartment and we felt like we were visiting our distant relative. A great experience---highly recommend---especially if you get Myriam...she was terrific!

We had a great time on this tasting. Our host was very welcoming and very knowledgeable. The blind tasting was a great way to be unbiased when talking about the wines and picking out the flavours. Having the tasting in a real Parisian's home was also a great experience. Would definitely recommend this one!

Thank you to our host!

This was a very pleasant experience – the explanation given concerning the wine and cheese was very enjoyable, but with the tasting experience, a real joy to the senses. A 5* experience that helped me to discover new flavors and an innate capacity to combine them, that I was not aware!

Great Small Group Experience! Our wine tasting had only 5 people in our group, so it was ideal to learn from the guide and to meet the other travelers. We really enjoyed our oenologist / guide, Miriam. She was very knowledgeable about both wine and cheese, but also made us very comfortable in expressing our own opinions of the wines. As she said ‘there are no wrong answers’ – which made us all comfortable. The wines selected (three reds and three whites) represented a broad range of styles and tastes. Tasting them blind also was very fun. The cheeses (as always) were phenomenal. At the end, we re-tasted each wine after having the cheese and were surprised to see how much our initial impressions changed. We also liked being invited into the Miriam’s home to do this tasting. This really gives you a much more local experience rather than a commercial tasting room. I would love to do more of these local experience tours in Paris! Highly recommended!
