      A Wonderful Wine Tasting Experience
      An absolutely outstanding experience. Thierry did a great job in detailing the various wine regions and fundamentals of wine tasting. What made this different was that it was very well structured with PowerPoint slides for those wishing to take notes or photos. He also provided brochures and a page listing all the wines. The six wines we tasted were great. Highly recommended.

      Look no further - a wonderful and fun introduction to French wine!!
      Whether you are a wine lover, visiting France for the first time or want to learn more about French wines and their regions, or looking for an immersive wine experience, this is the BEST!! Thierry is very personable and knowledgeable sommelier loves to share his love of French wines and their history. Such a fun and educational experience for my husband and I.

      Such a fun way to spend an evening in Paris!
      We attended a wine tasting here in November and absolutely loved it! It was one of the highlights of our mother/daughter trip. There were only 6 people total during our tasting and that made it even better. The wine was wonderful and we learned so much about French wine. Bonus, the bread served was fresh and delicious. Our host was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed this. Highly recommend to anyone who loves wine or wants to learn more about French wine. :)

      Thierry made our day!
      Our family enjoyed a wonderful time with Thierry today. The wine, cheese, and education he shared were all fantastic, and all in a very comfortable and relaxed setting. We are wine and cheese amateurs but felt fully at ease and left happy and smarter for sure. Highly recommend.

      Great way to spends an afternoon.
      We had a wonderful time. The sommelier was very knowledgeable, very easy answering all our questions. A very nice small group on the day. The wines and cheese varieties were perfect, and suited everyone’s pallet. Best thing to do in Paris.

      I 100% recommend this fun wine tasting experience. The host was very kind and knowledgeable, and though we had some very high-end dinners, these were the best wines i tasted while in France. Thanks again!

      My wife and I experienced the Wine tasting at 5PM. Perfect time! The group was just the right size. It was very informative and we learned much about French wines. We tasted Champagne, Burgundies, Bordeaux, and some white wines. They all had their own unique tastes and were very good!

      Wine Tasting in Paris
      Wine Tasting in Paris is a great go to place for education and wine! While on vacation, found Thierry through a google search and beyond glad I decided to go! I learned so much about the regions, wine making process, and how to taste. Anyone looking for a journey through France wine regions but on a smaller scale without trains, taxis, etc, learn through Theirry!

      A Must Do!
      The class was so interesting and fun! Thierry was so nice, patient, and professional. All of the wine and champagne was delicious. The best part, you can buy bottles of what was tasted right there! Everyone in the class was so much fun and friendly. Many great places to get dinner nearby afterwards too.

      Amazing!
      The experience was incredibly informative and fun with lovely wines (generous pours!) and an option for cheese pairings which went beautifully. Thierry was excellent, very chatty and answered all our questions (even the stupid ones) and sparked insightful conversation amongst the group. We tried a champagne, two whites and 3 reds, all of different calibre. There was a leaflet provided with a map of all the french wine regions and he provided an excellent overview of the difference of the wines from the areas. Overall, a brilliant experience and we would definitely return - it was worth every cent!

      Very informative and enjoyable wine tasting
      This was our last father/daughter event in Paris and, by general agreement, probably the best (and there was strong competition). Thierry (spelling?) was very informative, humorous and engaging. The explanations of French wine regions, grape varieties, and how to taste wine were easy to understand and well-paced. Servings were generous; we were all good friends at the end of the two hours. I highly recommend this tour.

    Very good experience, the sommelier spoke and taught from the wine knowledge that the participants had.
    The cheese was excellent, and the amount of cheese was good. Don’t change that.
    The wine was excellent, and the amount was good. Don’t change that.
    Good pairing with the different cheese and wines, good atmosphere, good know-how about the wines/cheese, the origins, the ettikette and more.

    We did this activity on our first day in Paris and it was such a highlight. It was easy to get there on the metro, and in a lovely neighbourhood. Our host was Thierry, and he was funny, warm and informative. There was about 10 people altogether in the group, and it was very fun to chat and talk to them over our wine and cheese. As an informative experience about wine, cheese, and pairing them, this experience was excellent, and we learnt a lot. The wine was delicious and generously poured, and the cheese was scrumptious. I highly recommend this experience, whether you are with friends or to go alone. You will love it.

    We signed up for this wine and cheese pairing based on the recommendation of a friend. Thierry was very welcoming and super informative. This is definitely a wine for beginners tasting. He takes you through the different aspects of wine and cheese with a focus on the tasting. You get to experience four different wines from four different areas paired with four different kinds of cheeses. The wines were excellent with heavy pours. The cheese part was probably the most informative for us as decently experienced with wine. There were nine people in the tasting and the room probably could have taken a couple more. We would have probably preferred more wines/cheeses with smaller pours/cuts. However, it was still a greatly enjoyable, informative afternoon.

    Hello Levi, Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you have apreciated the wines and cheese you had. I feel sorry to read that you would have prefer to have more wines to taste because I have another tasting session with 6 wines instead of 4. So it would have probably better for you to have the other one! maybe next time? All the best. Thierry

    One of the best Cheese & Wine experiences I have had the pleaure to attend. The host Thierry has an excellent command of English. From his warm welcome on arrival and throughout, he shared his extensive knowledge of cheese, wine and France. he was very organised and informative without being at all regimented. He chose 4 wonderful delicious cheeses and 4 superb wines, explained why he had chosen those particular ones together and all about their background and production. We were with a small group of people all equally delightful and fun. Hoenstly, if you want a great 'cheese & wine' experience in Paris, this is the one to choose. We loved it.

    Thierry was an excellent host and the most eloquent of connoisseurs. The session was extremely interesting and enjoyable. Not only was Theirry engaging but he made the session fascinating. The best thing was the serving sizes. The cheese and wine selections were absolutely phenomenal.
    If I were looking for a slight criticism (which is very difficult because the session was amazing) I would say that it would be helpful if theirry alternated which side he poured the wine for as one side consistently got larger glasses of wine.

    Thierry was knowledgeable and pleasant. Our noon tasting had only 2 couples. We were late because of unexpected Paris Metro train issue. The other couple was 20 minutes late. They didn’t say why. Learned they were married 2 days earlier so perhaps we know why! No problem Thierry was patient. 4 wines and 4 cheeses. Presentation room cozy side. Capacity 12. Included visual on projected screen. Very professional. Generous pours… just ask for more! Wines for sale reasonably priced. Unique experience due to cheese pairing discussions.

    This was a great way to start our Paris vacation! Thierry did a wonderful job educating our group of 5 all about French wines. His tastings were generous, his comments insightful, and we really appreciated the prepared materials that allowed us to just focus on the experience. We chose to do this first thing, to enable us to make better wine decisions on our visit - and it worked beautifully. Thank you, Thierry!
