Apologies this review is late, but I can highly recommend this class. Olivier was charming, knowledgable and gave us an amazing experience. He is an expert in wine and his passion shows clearly through his conversation and gentle testing of you, the wines he chose where truly incredible and the experience he gave to us with matching wines to cheese was simply amazing. Despite the class being listed as 1 hour and a half we actually stayed with him for longer and not once did he make the class feel rushed. Really a wonderful experience that I can highly recommend for both French and English speakers. Already we have been looking for his recommendations in wine shops!
