Wine tasting in Paris

Guided tours, themed itineraries, evenings at wine merchants … Original ideas for wine tasting in Paris

France is reputed for the quality of its wine and attracts numerous wine buffs. In Paris, many wine and champagne bars welcome enthusiastic œnologues and beginners, and wine merchants present the latest vintages that they have sourced. For original tastings, various companies offer special guided tours on the theme of wine, to meet independent winegrowers. These tours take the form of walks around town, urban orienteering, or a trip to a wine region and wine storehouse. Other companies organize wine tasting evening events to introduce their clients to wine, to teach them how to identify flavours and to compare the characteristics of different wines.

Special guided wine tours

Les caves du Louvre

The Caves du Louvre, in the former mansion of the sommelier to Louis XV, have recently opened their doors to the public, and offer a surprising experience. They invite visitors to approach the subject of wine in a sensory way. Five rooms spread over 600 m² each appeal to a different sense: smell, touch, sight, hearing … provoking sensations that are a key to understanding wine ... Taste – the final sense appealed to at a wine tasting – is discussed at the end of the tour, in a room where visitors are invited to taste several wines. A fascinating and instructive place to learn about French wine.

Note: interactive tour via the application ‘Wine in Paris’ for smartphones and tablets (loan possible).
