The O Chateau was a perfect venue for tasting wine in the centre of Paris - no need to leave the city, particularly if you are only there for a short while. Our English speaking sommelier, Felicity, was very knowledgeable, very forthcoming when asked questions and made the evening a wonderful event. The cheeses and cold meats were the perfecr accompaniment to the selected wines. We stayed after the tasting for a light meal which was excellent and the staff were attentive and polite. Would thoroughly recommend.

This was our first evening in Paris and a great way to start. Our sommelier Frederick was awesome - very knowledgeable and extremely personable. Everyone in the group seemed to enjoy themselves. We learned a lot about wine. We were given generous pours of four I think it was four wines and had a lovely cheese plate along with it. My husband and I stayed after the tasting and had a delicious dinner at O Chateau. We would recommend this event to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to learn a little more about French wines.

Pierre was very knowledgeable in the various wines and champagne presented that evening. A large group of individuals from all over the globe but dynamics worked out well. We definitely felt we learned a lot while enjoying ourselves at the same time. The wine bar was impressive as well and created a great ambience. A must-do!

This wine tasting was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Paris. Gerald, a French sommelier, led the 2 hour session. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and just a nice guy who clearly loves what he does. The wine servings are generous and the cheese/charcuterie plate was good as well. The physical space at the wine bar is beautiful as well. All in all, would highly recommend and would even consider doing it again on a future visit!

Clemont was exceptional. The venue and wine cellar was warm and inviting. The education, wine and food were worth the expense. It was good enough I purchased a case of wine.

The staff was very knowledgeable and very engaging! I was nervous my husband would be bored because he's not a big wine drinker but he loved hearing about the history of French wines and how each region has its own characteristics. And of course the wine was amazing! Definitely recommend if you're a French wine newbie like we were

The wine and champagne tasting was fantastic. Olivier, our sommelier, was wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable without being pretentious or overbearing. He answered questions the group had—no matter how inexperienced we were. Both my partner and I feel like we learned a lot and highly recommend
