The “Tour de France” is for anyone with an interest in wine. You drink wine but would you like to learn more about it? You feel rather comfortable ordering Californian or Australian wine, but can’t really make sense out of French wine? You know the grapes you like, but would you like to learn more about the French regions? You’re coming to France and feel like learning about French wine would be a good thing to do – maybe just for the sake of being able to order the wines you like at a restaurant. Save 2 hours in your busy schedule for the “Tour de France” tasting.
The class starts at 5pm in a beautiful venue located right near the Louvre. We’ll taste six different wines, coming from 6 different regions of France. From Champagne to Bordeaux, from Sancerre to the Rhone… just sit back and enjoy a fun and informative wine experience! With a unique and refreshing approach, your sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up your wine knowledge. He will teach you how Champagne is made and how to taste wine properly. We’ll go together through the main wine regions of France – the grapes they grow, the style of wine they make. Your sommelier will teach you how to read a French wine label. He will clarify concepts like terroir or appellation… This tasting class is both informative and fun. In just two hours, you will learn a lot, and will taste good French wines.
