Tour de France of Wine Tasting
Ready To Experience The Best Wine Tasting in Paris?
We designed this masterclass for wine lovers. Fancy knowing more about what you drink? Are you comfortable with ordering a Californian or Australian wine but can’t really make sense of French wine? Do you know the grape varieties you like but would like to learn more about the French regions where it is planted? You’ve booked your trip to Paris and feel that learning about French wine would be useful– maybe just for the sake of being able to order the wines at a restaurant? Then this tasting is the one for you.
Description of your Tour de France of Wine tastingThe tasting starts at 5pm in our 17th-century wine cellar just nearby Le Louvre. You will taste six different wines from 6 different wine regions in France. Just sit back and enjoy the Tour de France of wine - Ô Chateau style! With a unique and refreshing approach, our sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up your wine knowledge. Our masterclass is both informative and fun. In just two hours, you will taste some excellent French wines whilst learning a lot about wine in France. They will teach you how Champagne is made, how to taste a wine, and how to read a French wine label. You will also be taken through the main wine regions of France – the grapes they grow, the style of wine they make, and clarify concepts of terroir or appellation for example. Then at 7pm or so, we’ll let you go – vaguely tipsy maybe - for the rest of your Parisian evening!
This will be the opportunity for you to ask all your questions:
- How is champagne made?
- Where do all the different grape varieties grow?
- What are tannins?
- What are the new wine trends?
- What are the best food and wine pairings?
- How do you taste wine?
All the wines you will taste during the masterclass are available to buy (plus many more too!) Just ask your sommelier. Santé et bon appétit!
