France is the world’s most famous producer of wine. It’s not hard to see why either, thanks to 17 different regions that produce everything from sparkling Champagne to deep, intense Burgundies. Today, France is still the leading exporter, but for those who aren’t connoisseurs, it can all be a tad intimidating. Luckily, vin-curious visitors to the capital can take their pick from our list of wine tours and tasting sessions in Paris, where expert guidance is on hand. We’ll drink to that!

The Louvre is renowned for being home to probably the most famous painting in the world, but did you know that beneath its many floors and rooms lies a maze of eighteenth-century wine cellars once used by King Louis XV? Guided by an expert sommelier, during your trip to Les Caves du Louvre you will learn about every step of the winemaking process, from growing the grapes to tasting the final product – an experience that might even make the Mona Lisa smile.

If you couldn’t pick a pinot noir out in a line-up or don’t know the difference between muscat and merlot, then this is the tour for you. Not only will you get to taste some plonk from the various regions of France, but you’ll also be guided through the process of tasting – and no, it’s not just swigging it back.

Are there two better tastebud treats than wine and chocolate? We couldn’t think of one either. In this tasting session, a trained oenologist (that’s a winemaking expert, FYI) will teach you how to properly savour the two.
