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.

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!)

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with Thierry. He was very knowledgeable, funny, and welcoming. The wines he chose were excellent and we learned a lot about French wines in a casual and warm environment. Thierry is engaging and presented information in a way that was accessible to multiple levels of wine connaissance. I highly recommend this experience, and the cheese pairing as well!

Enjoyed a terrific experience in Thierry’s shop. He limits the seating to keep things comfortable in the space. He selected a very good tasting flight that felt very representative of the regions of France. Thierry is a knowledgeable, personable, and approachable sommelier that can really help those that are just beginning their journey with French wines as well as those that are experienced and would benefit from this as a refresher. You can make it part of a nice evening on the Left Bank if you are not staying in the neighborhood. I would enthusiastically recommend this experience to anyone staying in Paris!

Brilliant tasting, really made our trip. Thierry was wonderful and had great knowledge and made it really enjoyable. The location and set up was great, really well thought out and of course fantastic wines. Was a great way to learn, try wine and also meet new people.

My husband and I had a great time with Thierry. He’s exceptionally knowledgeable about the different wine regions in the country and it was fun to be able to try wines from the areas he spoke about. I also really enjoyed learning more about how to “read” wine labels! Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about French wine in a casual setting.
