The food and Wine were so yummy, I couldn't believe it. The presenter was really knowledgeable about the Wine and I discovered that I'm more of a white wine drinker. I would highly recommend going on this tour especially, if you want to learn more about wines and how to pair wines with food.

We arrived at O Chateau, which we found very easily due to the very good directions given on the voucher. We were immediately greeted warmly and led to the tasting room which was beautiful. The Somelier was informative and interesting. The wine was wonderful and the cheese, each wine was paired with, was equally delicious. We learnt so much, about wine, the french regions , how to open a bottle of champagne and what to look for when tasting wine. It was definitely worth the money and the time spent there during our short break. If you love wine and cheese it's a must go to.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Had a great time and our wine expert was very good at helping us identify the wine's aromas and tastes.
