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!
We did a number of tours around Paris and this was the best. The surroundings were fantastic, the produce was sourced locally and the wine superb. The sommelier was extremely informative and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend.
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
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.
Excellent experience! Justin had such vast knowledge and was incredibly personable.
Awesome!! Plenty of meats and cheese and was very informative. Learned a lot and the selections of wine and champaign were amazing. Highly recommend this.
Great wine and cheese and interesting history and understanding of wine told during the tasting. Definitely a worthwhile experience
This was an excellent introduction into fine wine. This tour included a Chef as well as a owner of one of the oldest restaurants in Austria.
We had a wonderful time - our sommelier was great - lots of information about the wines and the cheese pairings as well. It was nicely paced, with plenty of bread, nuts, dried fruits and meats to accompany our wine and cheese. We definitely recommend this as a treat in Paris!
This event was absolutely fantastic! From the decor, the wine/food pairings to the knowledge and humor of Quentin, our sommelier..... Don't leave Paris without doing this...
Quentin was great! He was very knowledgeable about the wine and helped in understanding how to taste and what to look out for. Wine and lunch were delicious!
Excellent a great way to spend a lunch. A little difficult to find the venue from the metro but it was all worth it.
Mostly met other people from the states which was good since we all understood each other.
The cheese was good even the stinky one was paired well. The sommelier was amazing. She was very knowledgable and a lot of fun! I definitely learned a lot, while eating good food and drinking great wine.
This tour was so much fun! Our sommelier, Charlotte, was fantastic! We had a group of 8 people which was the perfect size. It was a really good mix and everyone got along. The wine tasting was well done and it was an enjoyable couple hours. Would definitely do this one again!
This was a great experience and much better than we had anticipated. Our host was knowledgable and fun and the cheeses and meats were very good, as was the selection of wines chosen.
Totally enjoyable!! Intimate atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. Would do it again.
Fabulous. The previous reviews were spot on and we highly recommend this.
Wow!! A wonderful experience presented by an expert guide who keep us entertained. We sampled five kinds of wine and had trays of meat and cheeses. Highly recommended.
Very enjoyable. Our sommelier was lovely and knowledgable. The pairings of cheese with wines was interesting and there was plenty of food on the table to try.
The tour itself was amazing. The venue was lovely and the staff member hosting the tasting was exceptionally knowledgeable. The wine was lovely and the food provided was very generous. Overall I would recommend this package.
The only grumble I have was that we thought we were booking an exclusive tasting just for our group of 8 people, we were not advised that there would be others joining us. Also, when I contacted Viator with some questions prior to booking, I found their call centre staff very unhelpful and unfriendly.
