What To Expect
We are inviting you to indulge in the classic French gourmet pair: wine and cheese. A French sommelier will expertly guide you through this wonderful tasting experience that is a must for every Parisian tourist.
Beginning with a flute of Champagne, you will be expertly guided through a wonderful tasting experience by our sommelier. This little gem is the best of Paris attractions. Most of the presentation will be focused on wine, but our sommelier will suggest pairings, will explain to you why this cheese might work better with that wine. While you indulge in two of France's best delicacies, you will learn about French wine, how to read a french label, how to pair it with food.
A day spent walking around Paris can certainly create an appetite, so servings of wine and cheese are generous. Plus we add some charcuterie (smoked ham from the South West of France, saucisson from Corsica) to bring even more joy and color to the table.
