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!

Very informative and interesting way to meet new people and drink wine. We could not believe the amount of food put in front of us. We where taught many things about wine and parings. Our sommelier was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour. Great afternoon

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Great break from sightseeing and crowds. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about wine, but French wine is very different from California wine. Also great introduction to French cheeses, and what pairs with wine. Group is about 14 people, and we had a very nice group. I would definitely do this again.
