France’s wine terroir has so much to offer. I want to share with you the basics of how to enjoy, and find your way around, French wine.

We aim at making it a fun and interactive session. We will taste wine (6 bottles) and food will be served (cheese, charcuterie and French baguette). And as we undertake our 2-hour journey through French wine, we will discuss many different topics.

GEOGRAPHY

- What are the main French wine regions and key grape varietals?
- Which style of wines should you expect from which region?

APPELLATIONS (AOCs) AND LABELS

- French wines are mostly defined, and classified, by the location of the vineyard where they're grown, be it a region or a village.
- We will decipher wine labels and talk about our French appellation system.

TASTING AND ENJOYING WINE

- How to analyze a wine using your senses (sight, smell and taste)
- Perceive various wine styles which can be traced to grape varietals, regions and winemakers

FOOD-WINE PAIRING

- What wines should you favor before dinner or if you're not eating?
- How about food and wine pairing?

CHOOSING WINE

- Recommendations for ordering wine in a restaurant
- Buying wine from a local cellar to bring back home

This experience is suited for beginners, as well as wine enthusiasts who want to learn more about French wine.

I have been a wine lover for almost as long as I can remember. After 15 years of living abroad and traveling for work, I chose to make a living out of my passion for wine.

I am now a professional sommelier and the owner and manager of a wine bar in central Paris.

And I have hosted wine events and experiences for 5 years, for corporate / team events, foreign travelers, and French wine lovers.

I love good wine, good food and 70s soul and funk music. There's a chance you get all three at Archibon, my wine bar.

Great addition to a “must do” travel list. Step out of the touristy museum stops and into Henri’s local welcoming wine shop. Great for english speakers and wine novices & experts alike.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this evening. There were four of us in total, which made for a more personal conversation, and Henri was great in responding to our questions, and exploring areas where we were interested in knowing more. He's knowledgable and enthusiastic - and comes highly recommended.

Don’t hesitate to book this. Definitely not a classroom approach, Henri had the wheel the whole time, but it felt like we got to hang out with him for 2 hrs and just talk and experience French wine. Henri’s knowledge and passion of French wine shines through. Our group feels much more comfortable navigating a French wine list, variety’s , and the geography of French wine. Def pick up a bottle from Henri’s stash before you leave.

I can say that leaving Henri's wine tasting session, I am more knowledgeable! Before I use to go into stores and pick up random bottles - NOW I KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR! Ha! Thanks much Henri, great experience.

Henri is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and introduced us to an array of French wines. He also went through great lengths to describe the way wines in France are classified (usually by geographical regions) rather than by the grapes themselves. Henri was very generous and answered every single question in great detail. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The only suggestion we would have is to perhaps go into a bit less detail since some of the other participants occasionally looked like they may have temporarily lost interest. However, this really isn't a fault of Henri's...it is actually a testament to his vast knowledge and enthusiasm about the wines of France. This experience is highly recommended to anyone who would like to learn more (or even begin learning) about French wines. All in all, this was a wonderful experience!
