Wanna discover France through its different wines? want to be able to stand in front of french guys teaching them how to drink french wine? or simply want to enjoy great wines?

Internationals In Paris, social network for internationals & expats living in Paris, proposes its second Wine Tasting Classes.



We propose you for the second time to attend wine tasting courses in english. First time it was great, with about 23 folks from all other the world sharing their own experiences while a charming wine tasting teacher was making them enter the french wine world ...

***** FOR MORE INFO ABOUT THE WINE TASTING: *****

1. This class will help you get a much better understanding and knowledge about French wine

2. Five wines (including one Champagne), carefully selected for quality will be served – always with generosity

3. You will leave the room knowing your way around French wine and feeling more comfortable ordering French wine at a restaurant

­ ­ ­ ­





We designed our Masterclass for anyone with an interest in wine. You drink wine but would like to learn more about it? You feel rather comfortable ordering Californian or Australian wine but can’t really make sense out of French wine? You know the grapes you like but would like to learn more about the French regions? You’re coming to France and feel like learning about French wine would be a good thing to do – maybe just for the sake of being able to order the wines you like at a restaurant? Then this tasting is for you.





The tasting starts exceptionally for Internationals In Paris at 8:00pm (instead of regular 5:00pm) in our 17th century wine cellar right near the Louvre. We’ll taste five different wines, coming from 5 different regions of France. From Champagne to Bordeaux, from Sancerre to the Rhone… just sit back and enjoy the Tour de France of wine – O Chateau style!







With a unique and refreshing approach, our sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up your wine knowledge. He will teach you how Champagne is made and how to taste wine properly. We’ll go together through the main wine regions of France – the grapes they grow, the style of wine they make. Your sommelier will teach you how to read a French wine label. He will clarify concepts like terroir or appellation…





Our masterclass is both informative and fun. In just two hours, you will learn a lot, and will taste good French wines. Then at 9:30pm-9:45pm or so, we’ll let you go – vaguely tipsy maybe – for the rest of your International In Paris evening!





All the wines you will taste are available for sale (plus many more too – just ask your sommelier).
