Meet your instructor — an experienced sommelier — at your cookery school in central Paris to begin your wine and cheese pairing class. Designed with wine enthusiasts in mind, this 2-hour class is ideal for visitors to Paris keen to learn how fine French wine and cheese complement each other. During your class, taste four wines from different regions across France as well as one Champagne. Listen as your guide explains the five major French cheese families, then sample them to experience their subtleties of flavor for yourself. Hear the geographical and historical origins of the wine and cheese you’re tasting and gain insight into the key concept of "terroir" in French produce. Enjoy five wine and cheese pairings accompanied by a selection of sliced ham, bread and olives, and savor the wine and cheese as they work together to create complex aromas and flavors. Under guidance from your sommelier, bring your senses of smell and taste to the fore and learn the skill of blind wine tasting. Take a knife and master the art of sabering a Champagne bottle to open it, then share a glass with your classmates. At the end of your 2-hour class you will receive Drop-Stop for the perfect pour every time and the school will send you the list of wine and cheese matches you will have sampled electronically.
