Put this at the top of your list of things to do in Paris!
Please be careful there are two addresses starting with 68 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau. One has a zip code in Paris and another just outside the city on a hilltop with a different zip code. After taking the train to the later and walking 30 minutes up hill we were 10 minutes early for our start time of 5:00 pm. After knocking on the door at a private residence, we announced our presence for our wine tasting. A startled and confused Parisian kindly pointed out we were in the wrong place. After helping us figure out our mistake and pointing us in the right direction we had another 30 minute walk to the train. By this time we knew we wouldn’t be on time for our wine tasting.

We called the location of our wine tasting directly and fessed up to our mistake. A very sympathetic Olivia pointed out the tasting would be over by the time we would arrive about an hour and a half late. She offered us to still come to her bar and offered us a private wine tasting. It was a wonderful experience, if just for the exceptional service and kindness everyone showed us. The sommelier was very knowledgeable about the wines, cheeses and charcuterie we were sampling. The venue was intimate. Olivia and her team turned our difficult situation into an amazing experience. This will be our first stop on our next trip to Paris.

Amazing experience, Charlotte was just the best! Well travelled, fluent in English and fantastic way of explaining everything about wine that a beginner or someone more knowledgeable would like to know. Really fun evening, beautiful room - upset we didn’t get photos, totally forgot with how fun it was! Wine selection was fantastic value, delicious cheeses for all palates. Thanks Charlotte, we will be back!

This wine tasting was excellent. The location is nice and cozy. All the wines were delicious and paired with the charcuterie board made the experience even better. Charlotte was very well spoken and knowledgeable of the wines. She provided us with great advice on wines to try and purchase on our trip. I definitely recommend this activity when in Paris.

Cheers! Sante!
Two of us did the wine and cheese tasting. We each had a choice of a cheese board (5) different cheeses or a chacuterie board of 2 dried beefs and 1 dried pork to go along with the tastings. We chose one of each and shared and bread was also provided.
Sampled 1 champagne and 5 wines. We learned how to look, smell and taste wines for 2 hours. Pairing wines included how to read labels, types of grapes used, as well as what regions they came.
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with the sommelier.

Very Interesting
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.

Great Tasting
Jan 2020
This was a very fun experience. My husband and I had never been to a wine tasting before so we figured what better place to try than Paris. I personally didn't like the wine very much, but the wine expert was very informative on what smells and tastes to look out for while trying the wine. The meat and cheese were very good and paired well with the wine. If you like wine this is the place to go.

Great experience!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We have been in a wine tasting in Napa Valley with Mondavi and many more in California, at the Wine tasting at Niagara Falls in Canada, we missed Italy so we decided to have it in Paris.

It was great as Pierre was very much informed and he has good sense of humour that we always end up laughing. We also learned a lot about the cheese in France.
Well recommended 👍
