Have you ever gone to a restaurant with a girlfriend, been given a wine menu and sat reading through it as if it were in a foreign language? Well, fair enough, sometimes it is, but it is still a little embarrassing none-the-less. It is never too late to remedy the problem, and what better place to do it than in beautiful Paris.

Try our French Wine Tasting in Paris and you will have your choice of four wonderful options that will send you on your way to becoming a connoisseur of French wines.

For a nice simple introduction to French wines, there is the 1-hour course, where you can sip wines over tasty traditional cheeses and bread snacks. For a more in-depth experience, you can choose the 1.5-hour cheese and wine lunch, where you can taste five selected wines, each introduced with recommended meal parings and accompanied with a selection of cheeses, charcuterie and bread. It is a great way to refine your palate and appreciate the distinction among various wines.

The third option is a 2-hour master-class: six wines, champagne and bread, a course on meal pairings, and how to read French labeled wines, which is sure to impress a loved one. Your entertaining teacher will also give you a brief background on French wine and where in the country to find certain grapes, in case you might want to take a trip to the vineyards.

The last option is the most grand of them all, the 2-hour Grands Crus wine tasting, including everything featured in the master-class, plus wine appellations introduced by a professional sommelier, who in addition will familiarize you with the complex Grand Cru and other notable wines.

When it’s all said and done, you will get the option to purchase some of your favorite wines from the tasting.
