What You Can Expect

French Wine and Champagne Tasting in Paris

French Wine and Champagne Tasting in Paris

Spend an evening sampling the best of what France's wine industry has to offer during a French wine and Champagne tasting in Paris. Make your way to a beautifully renovated wine cellar in Paris' city center, not far from the Louvre Museum, and settle in for a French wine master class.

With guidance from a sommelier, you'll taste six different French wines from all over the country, including Bordeaux, Sancerre, Rhone and Champagne. Learn what makes French wines so beloved. Hear about how Champagne is made, and why it's long been considered the best bubbly. Find out how to taste wine correctly, what words like 'appellation' and 'terroir' mean and how to read a French wine label.

This 2-hour wine tasting is designed to give you a deeper understanding of French wines in a relaxed setting where you can actually enjoy what you're learning. Sip wine from delicate Riedel glasses and nibble fresh bread – or upgrade to add a plate of cheese and charcuterie for a more substantial snack.

At the conclusion of the tasting, you'll receive a list of all the wines you sampled, and you'll leave with greater confidence for the next time you're handed a wine list in a restaurant.

The wine and champagne tasting was fantastic. Olivier, our sommelier, was wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable without being pretentious or overbearing. He answered questions the group had—no matter how inexperienced we were. Both my partner and I feel like we learned a lot and highly recommend

I will definitely recommend booking this event. The entire experience was excellent. I also highly recommend ordering a plate of the cheese and a plate of the meats if it is two of you in your group. My husband and I met so many wonderful guests at the event and the host is definitely knowledgeable and enjoyable. Don't skip this event, it will be worth it.

This was a great evening with a very knowledgeable sommelier. We tasted some very nice french wines, and learned a little about the areas they were produced in and how to better understand the label on the wine and what it all means.
