    Our teacher/apartment owner was extremely knowledgable and made the whole experience quite entertaining. This was in a wonderfully quaint Paris apartment and we felt like we were visiting our distant relative. A great experience---highly recommend---especially if you get Myriam...she was terrific!

    We had a great time on this tasting. Our host was very welcoming and very knowledgeable. The blind tasting was a great way to be unbiased when talking about the wines and picking out the flavours. Having the tasting in a real Parisian's home was also a great experience. Would definitely recommend this one!

    Thank you to our host!
