Full description
Head for the lovely tasting rooms of O Chateau in central Paris, where a sommelier awaits you to guide you through a dinner of French produce paired with 5 different wines, chosen to perfectly match the evening's menu. This experience was crafted especially for foodies looking for something different. To sign up for this activity, there is no need to be a gourmet expert. The important thing is to love wine and food, and to want to have a good time! The dinner starts at 20:00 at O Chateau, and includes a chef-prepared appetizer, main course, and a dessert. O Chateau is located in a ‘hotel particulier' previously owned by Mme de Pompadour in the 17th-Century. Voltaire, Rousseau, and George Sand used to come to these famous receptions organized by the lady of the house. In the beautiful old vaulted cellars, the most famous French wines were stored to serve to guests. The menu uses fresh seasonal produce and is constantly changing, but expect to be served fare such as seared scallop with avocado and cucumber salad, soy sauce and fresh raspberry reduction; veal tenderloin medallions with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, braised seasonal vegetables, and a red wine reduction; and moelleux au chocolat, with vanilla bean ice cream. Using a unique and refreshing approach, your sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up and refine your wine knowledge. He will share with you the secrets necessary to taste wine properly, to navigate a wine list, and to choose wine at a restaurant. He will also expertly guide you through the main wine regions of France, explain to you how to read a French label, and how to pair wine with food.

Great Experience, Incorrect Information

My visit to O Chateau was entertaining, informative and delicious. I was part of a group of nine people (there was room for only one more at the table), and we met in a private room adjacent to the restaurant. Our sommelier (Remi) was knowledgeable, spoke very good English and had a great sense of humor. He kept us engage, and I learned quite a bit about French wines. The dinner was fabulous, prepared by a highly skilled chef to complement the wines. Service was excellent. The only negative: the start time to the dinner was 15 minutes earlier than the ticket seller had stated when they sent me my ticket and information. Hence, I missed the introductions and first part of the tasting. Had I bought my ticket from the O Chateau website rather than from a link I found on Tripadvisor, I would have had the correct information.

Great guide and wine person.

Knew more than anyone should about wine. And I say this in a nice way. He could talk wine and every subject about wine. He was great, kind, friendly, knowledgeable, etc. Everything you would want in a guide. The food was poor, so go for the wine tasting and knowledge. Go eat again after the tour.
