Highlights
    What to Expect
    Head to the venue in central Paris in the afternoon to meet your guide, an experienced sommelier, and begin your wine tasting. Designed with keen wine-lovers in mind, this 2-hour session offers insight into some of France’s most productive winemaking regions and the wines for which they are famous.

    Throughout your class, listen as the sommelier describes five of the key winemaking regions across France. Learn some of the primary characteristics of the grape varietals that thrive in the country’s fertile soils, and gain insight into the links between region, grape and flavor. Hear how to recognize a wine’s provenance without looking at the label.

    During blind tasting sessions accompanied by a selection of sliced ham, bread and olives, bring your senses to the fore and sample five carefully selected wines and one type of Champagne. Explore their similarities and differences with your sommelier, and gain appreciation of the various aromas and flavors at play in your glass.

    Master the stylish art of opening a Champagne bottle with a saber, then share a glass with your fellow drinkers. At the end of your session, receive a useful booklet and a stop-drop for the perfect pour every time, then head out into Paris to conclude your experience.
