"Stephane, the wine expert, lead the event and Fred added in interesting historical annecdotes - they were both engaging hosts. We learned about the different wine regions and the types of wines they produce, how to examine the color and the aromas and how to properly "swish"

Nancy L., Tripadvisor, March 2013

We were greeted by Stephan and had a wonderful time tasting wines and matching them with cheeses. Stephan made the entire process fun while also teaching you about the different wine regions in France.

Stories:

Tasting wine is a lot of fun; but we find it is even better with stories and anecdotes drawn from the regions and history of France - told based on a lot of knowledge, but also with a bit of humour so you can remember more than just the wines.

you will use your eyes, your nose, and your palate to discover wines.  But maybe also your ears and your fingers! We will even isolate some smells to help you recognize them in wine.
All of your senses will be put to contribution in this original discovery.

 

French cheeses

Pairing Wine with Cheese:

With hundreds of cheeses and close to a thousand types wines, and knowing that actually many combinations do not work, before taking this class, the odds are against you!  And yet, after an experience with us, you will understand the secret to pairing any French cheese with wine!

And you will of course also learn quite a bit about French cheeses throughout; from process to history to what are the big familities of cheese (one of the keys to pairing ...)

Champagne Saber and Two Cups

Champagne Tasting in Paris: 

Possibly the most famous of French wines, and a perfect tasting should involve it.  So whether in a discovery of France in 6 glasses or a Wine and Cheese pairing lunch, you will get to taste great Champagnes, and even learn how to saber one bottle.   And if you really like Champagne, then our "Champagne!" experience is for you.

Cheese and Wine in Paris

The pleasures we can derive from French cuisine can seem endless.  However two of the best known and loved French gastronomic heroes are French cheese and wine. Whether we talk about a Brie which actually comes from very close to Paris, to a creamy Camembert from Normandy, or a Comté from the Alps, French cheese has a delight for all palates. And of course, French wines are even better known whether from Bordeaux great wines or Burgundy sophisticated whites – all of which enthral wine lovers.  Well, at our course on cheese and wine in Paris you will come to appreciate that although each is delicious on its own, properly matched cheese and wine together can make the experience of each even more enjoyable and an absolute delight.

How to pair cheese and wine in Paris

Overall we will feature four excellent wines, one Champagne and demonstrate to you how best each combines with cheese, letting your taste guide you along with our teaching.
