This Wine and Cheese Lunch has become a landmark for any gourmet traveller. It was designed as a fun and different way to have a meal in Paris. Instead of going to yet another restaurant, the Wine and Cheese Lunch is a great opportunity not only to taste good French products but also to learn about them.
The tasting starts at noon in a 17th-century wine cellar right near the Louvre, and includes tastings of five different wines, coming from 4 different regions of France. From Champagne to Bordeaux, from the Loire to the Rhone Valley…
Most of the presentation will be focused on wine, however, the sommelier will suggest cheese pairings, and will explain to you why this cheese might work better with that wine. While you indulge in two of France’s best delicacies, you will learn about French wine, how to read a French label, and how to pair it with food, plus you’ll be taken through a tour of France’s main wine regions…
A day spent walking around Paris can certainly work up an appetite, so servings of wine and cheese are generous. Plus we add some charcuterie (smoked ham from the South West of France, saucisson from Corsica…) to bring even more joy and colour to the table.
Santé et Bon appétit!
