About Wine Tasting Dinner
When you travel to Paris you will most likely eat at a restaurant twice a day for several days. It is fantastic but it might also get old. This wine tasting dinner is just what you need for a special Paris food and wine experience. We created this experience for people willing to treat themselves to a meal they will not forget! To be part of this there is no need to be an expert. What matters is that you love wine and food and you want to have a good time. The dinner starts at 2015 in our 17th century wine cellar right near the Louvre. Throughout dinner well taste four different wines chosen by our sommelier to marry perfectly with the food that night. The meal will be a traditional and well executed French meal with an appetizer main course and dessert. The menu is the same for all participants but if there is anything you dont eat just specify it when you book and well take it into account. If upon arrival you realize that you dont eat what we suggest our chef will prepare an alternative course for you - no worries. The menu varies from season to season to ensure the freshest possible selection in season constantly changes. With a unique and refreshing approach our sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up and refine your wine knowledge. He will share with you the secrets to taste wine properly to navigate a wine list and to choose wine at a restaurant. He will expertly guide you through the the main wine regions of France explain to you how to read a French label how to pair wine with food and so on. Our wine tasting dinner is both informative and fun.
