The location was great, as well as the selection of wines. The sommlier was engaging with a phenomenal personality & knowledge base. I would say, the information is more for beginners and overview is extremely breif about regions and varietals (but to be honest France is large and there are thousands of vinyards, impossible to cover in depth in an hour). Having an extensive knowledge base from working in the wine industry for the US, I always feel any opportunity is one to learn from, however, besides a few wine facts from the French perspective, I cannot say it was significantly informative for wine geeks. In other words, if you want to have a great time and try some delicious French wines, go! If you already know quite a bit, just sit back and enjoy the tasting :) it's a tasting foremost, and not a class. I enjoyed it as a last hurrah in Paris.
Our sommelier was so very knowledgeable and made us all feel very comfortable. We learned so much about the regions of France and their wines, how to correctly read a wine label and were able to taste a variety of wines and champagne. Highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Paris!
This class was excellent one of my favorite visits I have made while traveling. Diedier was a great teacher and entertainer. He made it very interesting and fun. Our translator was super nice and perfect. We learned how to make croissants, baguettes and puff pastry.
This was such a fun time! Probably the highlight of our time in Paris. The class was small and we got to learn a lot about making these special cookies. Will defiantly do another class here when we return to Paris.
Loved the tour it was fun! The tour lady was nice too and explained everything to us don’t recall her name I know she was from Argentina. Great experience to do when visiting Rome!
