Full description
From the moment you arrive at the cave à vin (the wine cellar), you'll know you're in good hands. Step into a boutique, filled wall-to-wall with selections of reds, whites, and rosés from across all of France. You'll be greeted warmly by the staff and get settled in the prepared wine-tasting area of the boutique. After meeting your wine expert, you'll receive a great overview of the wine regions of France, and with maps and authentic soil samples you'll understand how different grapes and the diverse terrain of the country have led to the vast number of varieties of wine produced. Your wine expert will tailor your tasting to the group's wishes, and will propose wines from across France based on your interests.  Only wines from small, independent producers are sold here, so you're sure to discover something new. Paired with a hard cheese and a soft cheese from a nearby artisanal cheese shop, you'll discover the incredible flavors that can be created simply by combining different wines with each. Water and bread will be also available as a palette-cleanser.  Ask questions and learn from some of the most passionate oenologists in Paris, who are happy to share their love of wine with you. Finish your tasting feeling more confident in understanding the differences in wines, thanks to what you will have learned and the varieties of wine that you will have enjoyed.

    A very friendly lady showed us the world of wine - including maps, was very interesting. The location is a small vinotheque, easily accessible.
