OUR STORY

O Chateau is all about making the culture of wine more fun and more accessible. It’s been our motto since crazy 20 somethings started the adventure back in 2004!
We believe that wine education is not rocket science and that wine tastings should be both fun and interesting. In 2011, we opened our new home. We completely revamped a fabulous historical venue to create a place with 3 beautiful tasting rooms and a stunning wine bar area. But more importantly, what we created is a space where we’d like to come spend some quality time, drinking some good wine, learning new things and having fun. We have served thousands of clients over the years, and each one of them has been part of this adventure. We could not be more thankful and very much look forward to your visit!!

Nicolas Paradis

Nicolas is the founder and designer of the Wine Bar. As the Managing Director of O Chateau he is in charge of every boring and key issues.. when his three kids leave him alone!…

Alexandre Savoie

O CHATEAU IN THE PRESS…

COOL ACHIEVEMENTS

WORLD RECORD

(of the highest wine tasting in the world)

In October 2009, Ô Chateau broke the record of the highest Wine Tasting in the world. We partenered up with Vueling to arrange this once in a lifetime event. It was lots of fun for us, as well as for the passengers onboard that day: we offered an unforgettable tasting of three catalan wines with a fun and innovative approach!

COUPLES

(made at Ô Chateau)

“Because no great story started with a glass of orange juice”

O Chateau is a place where love strikes. 8 happy (and current) couples have met at O Chateau, 4 weddings have been celebrated, 3 babies have been born and one more is on the way. We have no doubt that these kids will be great wine tasters! Also noteworthy, several clients have picked our Chapagne Cruise to propose to their bride. So far, they always said yes 🙂

AWARDS

(for our wine list)

O Chateau was the first ever Parisian wine bar to receive the Wine Spectator Award of Excellences. Since then, we have been distinguished every year not only by the Wine Specytator but also by prestigious French guidebooks Gault & Millau and Lebey. Given the competition in beautiful Paris, it is a real honor.

PASSION

(creation and innovation)

At O Chateau, we are passionate. And as such, we’re also mildly insane. So we’re the same team behind Les Caves du Louvre and It’s my wine. We love to innovate and to get ourselves into exciting projects, provided that good wine keeps flowing!
