Overview
France is renowned around the world for fine wines from famous wine regions including Bordeaux, Rhone Valley, Sancerre, and Champagne. This wine and Champagne tasting experience—which includes six tastings—takes the guesswork out of wine, with a guide on-hand to teach you about the different varietals and demystify the complex labels and classification systems of French wine.
Highlights
  • Sample wine from the Bordeaux, Sancerre, and other regions right in Paris
  • Learn about France’s different wine appellations from a sommelier
  • Master the art of tasting wine and get tips for ordering wine in restaurants
  • Taste six wines and upgrade to include a cheese and cured meat plate
What to Expect
Make your way to an atmospheric wine cellar, close to the Louvre Museum in central Paris, to meet your host for the evening—a professional sommelier. After an introduction to French wine and winemaking, begin your wine tasting masterclass, sampling six different wines from France. Taste wines from the Bordeaux, Sancerre, Champagne, and Rhone Valley wine regions, and listen as your guide explains the characteristics of each region. No matter your level of wine expertise you will improve your wine knowledge with expert tips and easy-to-follow advice. Learn how to understand the French appellation system, discover terroir, and learn how Champagne is made. Upgrade to include a food option and have your wines paired with a selection of delicious regional cheeses or a cheese and cured meat plate. Before you leave, your sommelier will present you with a list of the wines included in the tasting and offer recommendations based on your preferences.

Really enjoyed the wine tasting and charcuterie and cheese board . Best wine tasting I’ve been to - actually learned something instead of just gulping down lots of wine.
