What you'll do

Have you ever dreamed of travelling into the most famous wine regions of France with a certified French sommelier (speaking English, of course) It’s what I want to propose you during 1 hour, without leaving your couch at home. During the quarantine, I've adapted my classic wine experience to propose you a on-line experience to explain you everything you'd like to know about French wines. I will show you maps and pictures, develop the main key facts for those regions, I will explain how to read labels,.... and I will answer to all your questions! In fact the only I won't share with you, is a glass of my wine selection, but you can come with your own French wine and we can talk about it. The wine class will be live on Zoom. You just choose your date and time, and after booking, You will receive a link to connect for the class.…
Once you you will book you will receive a list of French wines that you could find locally and taste with me during the class.

You can check reviews for my 2 other experiences:
« Taste wine with a certified sommelier » and « Wine and Cheese pairing »
Other things to note
If you can try to have a laptop or tablet, better that a smartphone as you will see maps and pictures. Try to be in a quite place where you can also talk if you want to ask questions.
If you can have a glass of French wine during the class, it's even better.

Bonjour! My name is Thierry GIVONE, I'm a French sommelier and wine instructor, with several diplomas and distinctions in wine. I live in Paris, but I was born in Burgundy (Bourgogne) which the best wine of the world for me, of course ;-) I'm the founder and wine instructor of Wine Tasting In Paris, a wine place in the Latin Quarter of Paris, where I organise wine tasting classes for the last 6 years now. I already have 2 experiences live on Airbnb Experience, with a total of 1000 five stars reviews. During the quarantine period due to the Coronavirus crisis, I've decided to use my passion for wine and my willing to share my knowledge on French wines to propose a on-line French wine class.

This was my first Airbnb experience and I highly recommend it. We had a great time learning about French wines and tasting them.

Thierry was a fantastic host. He was knowledgeable about wine but also approachable in how he talked about it. I am going to recommend this experience to many friends.

My wife and I had a lovely evening. Thierry provided a charming overview of the French wine regions, guided us through our wine tasting, and was more than capable to answer our questions. Looking forward to visiting his shop in Paris!

Pretty comprehensive mapping of the different wine regions / elevations and how each differs. Also taught how to read a French wine label and what to expect when buying / ordering French wine. It was fun.

J'ai réservé cette expérience pour mon père et il en a été très content. Il connaissait déjà pas mal de choses sur les vignobles mais il a pu tout de même poser ses questions et avoir des explications plus approfondies. Il y a eu un petit couac du côté de mon père en ce qui concerne l heure de connexion, mais Thierry nous a immédiatement contacté pour nous faire part de notre erreur. Il a été compréhensif et a gentiment décalé la session pour que mon père puisse bénéficier de la totalité du cours.
