This luncheon is dedicated to tasting and learning about French cheeses and wines (and to having fun doing it). You'll taste 5 different wines (including 1 Champagne) as well as an assortment or artisanal cheeses and charcuterie. In a private tasting room, we'll explore the secrets to the best pairings. We'll also go through a general overview of French wines (the different regions, the main grapes and styles, etc.) and cheeses. You'll walk out most likely tipsy, full and with a much greater understanding and appreciation for good wines and cheeses. All in all, a delicious, fun and informative way to spend a lunch in Paris!
