Spend an evening sampling the best of what France's wine industry has to offer during a French wine and Champagne tasting in Paris. Make your way to a beautifully renovated wine cellar in Paris' city center, not far from the Louvre Museum, and settle in for a French wine master class.

With guidance from a sommelier, you'll taste six different French wines from all over the country, including Bordeaux, Sancerre, Rhone and Champagne. Learn what makes French wines so beloved. Hear about how Champagne is made, and why it's long been considered the best bubbly. Find out how to taste wine correctly, what words like 'appellation' and 'terroir' mean and how to read a French wine label.

This 2-hour wine tasting is designed to give you a deeper understanding of French wines in a relaxed setting where you can actually enjoy what you're learning. Sip wine from delicate Riedel glasses and nibble fresh bread – or upgrade to add a plate of cheese and charcuterie for a more substantial snack.

At the conclusion of the tasting, you'll receive a list of all the wines you sampled, and you'll leave with greater confidence for the next time you're handed a wine list in a restaurant.

My hubby and I love to have wine tours when we are in Europe so this one, in a little wine cave, seemed perfect. I know nothing about French wine, so the education piece of this experience was super memorable. Also I thought I didn't like French wine but as it turns out, I don't like wine from Bordeaux. Who would have thought? The sommelier was incredibly interesting, had a great sense of humor and made the evening so much fun. We were exhausted and almost skipped it but I am glad we didn't!

Experienced a most wonderful champagne and wine tasting. The tasting took place in a small establishment which had a wine cellar. Bring a sweater. The ambiance was cozy not crowded and tasteful. Our Host is extremely knowledgeable about wines and champagnes and was responsive to his guests. The selected wines were delicious! We also ordered charcuterie plates which was a must! I highly recommend this tour. Had I stayed longer in Paris, I would have returned because of the wide variety of wine offerings for tasting. 50 total. Also, the location of the establishment was great and very close to major attractions. My only negative, I would have liked to taste as many champagnes as there were wines. ;-)

Great experience, highly recommended for people visiting Paris wanting to know more about French wine & Champagne. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and passionate about his wine. We had a great time. It was my friend’s birthday and he was treated to a wonderful surprise ( birthday dessert ) which was such a nice touch to a great evening in O Château. Thank you!
