Your tasting tour begins in a fashionable, converted wine cellar in central Paris. Both wine novices and expert connoisseurs will appreciate hands-on instruction from a top sommelier, who will guide you through multiple tastings from all of the top vineyards in France.

Sipping from top-quality Riedel wineglasses, learn the time-tested techniques for wine tasting, as your guide provides background on the top wine-producing regions. Sample grape varieties from Sancerre, Champagne, Rhone, and Bordeaux, recognized as the wine capital of the world. Learn to taste the subtle differences between them, along with how to read a French wine label.

After your tasting tour, sample artisanal cheeses from a real fromager (cheesemonger), along with a variety of charcuterie (cured meats), including smoked ham from Southwestern France and saucisson (dry cured sausage) from Corsica. End the tour as a wine expert, learning how to pair meat and cheese with different types of wine.
