Full description
Take part in a casual wine tasting class and significantly improve your skills in tasting and comparing fine French wines. To start you off on this 2-hour activity, you’ll enjoy a welcoming glass of white wine and a glass of red wine. Learn to break the codes of wine tasting by using their color, aroma and taste.         Then you’ll take a tour of France through its wines. Taste 4 wines from the 4 main wine regions of France, discovering their diversity and hearing about the concepts of ‘terroir’ and ‘appellation’. Afterwards your wine educator will conduct a blending workshop. Bordeaux wines are blends made from various types of grapes, such as Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, and others.

Really professional and serves a lot of wine

I really like wine and drink it a lot, but even though I poured a small amount for tasting, it was too much, so I had to throw it away. I was able to try so many different wines, and it was fun to explain everything by region. The space was well decorated and it was cute and nice!
