Taste wines with a certified sommelier

Paris, France

Experience hosted by Thierry

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English and French

What you'll do

As a French professionnal sommelier, I propose a premium intimate experience, and I host all the tasting sessions personnally. So if you book this experience, there's no risk to get a random temporary "wine guy " with just an average knowledge about French wines.
The tasting is a kind of Virtual French Wines Tour in which you will discover and taste 6 wines: 1 Champagne, 2 white wines and 3 red wines from the most prestigious wine regions: Burgundy, Bordeaux, Cotes-du Rhone.... You will learn also how to taste wine like an expert. You will have lots of maps, pictures and keys facts on a screen during the tasting and you can ask as many questions as you like.
You will leave the place with a brochure with the basic information about French wines. You can also buy the wine you prefer direcly in the wine shop after the experience.
There is a possibility to buy a cheese platter for your tasting to pair your wines with some delicious French cheese from Beillevaire. Try to send a message before if you'd like to have one.
Other things to note
Be prepared to have fun and become really enthusiastic about French wines!

Born and raised in Burgundy, I'm a professional sommelier certified by the Wine & Spirit Edication Trust (WSET, level 2 and 3) and also an official wine instructor for Bourgogne (Burgundy) wines. I love to share my passion for wines with visitors coming from all over the world. I've created my own company, Wine Tasting In Paris, in 2014 to propose wine tasting classes and wine events for travellers, groups or companies. I've developped a clear visual presentation about French wine regions, how to understand them, how to taste wines, read a label etc...and I try to explain this serious content in a casual and friendly way.
The tasting takes place in my own private wine shop and tasting room in the Latin Quarter (not in a public, busy and noisy wine bar!)

    Thierry was very personable and knowledgeable. He created such a welcoming environment to learn about French wines and the regions where they were produced. My daughter and I highly recommend this experience! Even learned about cheese parings with the wines that Thierry featured. Merci Thierry!

    Such an amazing experience that I cannot recommend enough! Thierry is an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide that makes this tasting enjoyable for everyone of all levels. Even after the tasting had finished, he stayed to talk with us, answer our questions, and gave us some excellent recommendations! I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to learn more about the art of French wine while enjoying some fantastic wines.

    Fantastic wines with a great educator in a warm and cozy tasting room, located in the vibrant Latin Quarter of Paris. The perfect venue to taste the cream of the crop of the French wine making regions and to meet interesting fellow winos from all over the world. Thierry is a font of wine knowledge and a terrific host. You can absorb years of valuable wine tasting and collecting tips in one or two short hours with this expert sommelier. Some of his wine selections are a meal in themselves! Thank You Thierry!

    I purchased this experience as a gift to my father during a multi-generational family trip to Paris. My father had an awesome time, and had nothing but nice things to say about the host and program. He came back feeling like he was much better equipped to choose and taste the wines of France, and wine in general. Definitely would book again!
