Full description

Join the kind of class you weren't offered at school and get advice on how to identify, select, and taste wine. Held in central Paris, go on a journey through the wine regions of France for the wine tasting tour de France option, and get a much better understanding about wine in general.

The venue is a few minutes walk from the Louvre, and you will taste different wines, from different regions of France. Discover the difference between the wine produce of Champagne and Bordeaux, of Sancerre and the Rhone.

With a unique and refreshing approach, your sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up your wine knowledge. 

Hear about how Champagne is made and how to taste wine properly. Go through the main wine regions of France, the grapes they grow, and the style of wine they make.  Learn how to read a French label, and clarify concepts like terroir and appellation.

All the wine will be available for sale, plus many more other varietals, too. Just ask your sommelier. And if you want to stay on for dinner and keep on trying more wines, the O Chateau’s brand new wine bar is ready and waiting, with delicious food and 40 wines to try by the glass every day.

    This was a very good experience. I learned slot, tasted some excellent wines. Bought a case to bring home. The group size was an issue. I don’t think the teacher expected so many. It took a long time to pour for all those people and some were not serious about the class.

    This is hands down one of the BEST learning experiences we've ever had. The setting is very evocative, everything well prepared. Our sommelier teacher, Clément, is very knowledgable. He managed to convey a lot of interesting information, always with a basis in wine making theory and chemistry, but with a true practical use. He made everything understandable and enjoyable without ever trivializing it into a "tourist experience". He also engaged with all participants throughout the lesson, and we were lucky we had a group who interacted a lot and people from all over the world, with different wine experiences. Every question was answered kindly and competently. We have learned things we did not know and understood things that were not clear before. You get to keep the list of wines and a small guide to remind you wine tasting steps. We recommend you go for this experience, it's definitely worth the time and the cost.

    We were looking for something to do and came across this experience. We are so glad we selected it. The sommelier knows a lot about the industry having started out planting vines. The staff members were fantastic and the wines were delicious. We highly recommend this experience. Be sure to order the wine and cheese boards offered when you check in.
