What an amazing experience. Not only were the wines and cheese and meats delicious, but the education on the different wine regions of France was wonderful. Also enjoyed the wine cellar setting.

Truly enjoyable experience, while learning about the wines and wine regions. I arrived an hour early, and was welcomed in. The parings were outstanding, with the cheeses and wines providing wonderful compliments to each other.

OMG - this was great. I could have done similar tours like this every day we were in Paris. So many wines and cheese, so little time. The big surprise for me was a particular pairing of a white wine with a Rockfort cheese. It was amazing. If you like wine and cheese, do this tour.

It was a great afternoon.....lots of wine, cheeses, and meats. And the baguettes were wonderful too. Would definitely recommend ....just maybe don't eat as much as we did!! We were full for hours!

This was such a fantastic experience! Much of our enjoyment of this lunch was driven by Nils, our sommelier. If you can do this tasting when he is your guide, do it. We were treated to a really fun and approachable education on how to properly taste wine, French wines, French cheeses and pairings. We tasted five very different and good wines and learned about their production and the different wine regions. Nils ended the lunch by giving us a run-down of each region: the types of grapes and wines, a little bit of the history and what the price points were for a good bottle. We came in knowing very little about French wines and left feeling like we could order from any wine list and could purchase bottles with confidence. This was worth every Euro and we raved about it so much that two other couples from our group went to O Chateau for tastings before we left.

Highly recommend this wine and cheese tasting! It takes place in a small wine cellar in central Paris near the Louvre. Our wine host was funny, knowledgeable, and kept the tasting on a good pace. The wines were exceptional with the option to purchase bottles after the tasting and the cheese/charcuterie pairings were spot on. The perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon in Paris.

What a terrific wine tasting and lunch! Great wines and a very educational and informative talk about the different wine regions and winemaking practices for the wines we were tasting. My wife and I along were joined by 4 other couples. It was intimate enough and certainly not overcrowded. Thank you O'Château!
