What you'll do

While comfortably installed at home, chilling out with a good bottle of wine, I will teach you everything you want to know about wine tasting.
Everyday, we will learn a different grape from white to red, from still to sparkling. I will explain to you the differences in the style of these grapes and their expressions throughout the world (for ex. Napa Chardonnay vs the top Burgundy). At the same time, we will as well review the wine tasting techniques, how to detect a faulty wine (corked, oxidised), how to paire wine with food, how to buy the best value wines at your nearest wine retailer...
You just have to pick a bottle of wine, preferably one with the grape of the day and get ready for a very interactive wine tasting online!

Excellent experience, a lot of learning about wines from France. I think the topic is so broad and complex but Luiz made it easy to understand and welcome all my questions. I think I am now much more prepared to go out and try some good French wines with all the good information I received from Luiz and some great tips. Now I hope one day soon I can travel to France and do some of Luiz's live AirBnB experiences!

Luiz was friendly and approachable. He shares his knowledge of wine without talking down to you, and I hope someday to take a tour with him in person, post pandemic!

Experiência nota 10! O Luiz nos deixou super à vontades para fazer perguntas sobre os temas expostos, compartilhar nossos pontos de vista, além de seguir fielmente suas explicações pertinentes e claras a todo momento. Foi minha primeira experiência em degustação de vinhos online e desde o início Luiz se mostrou disponível para sanar todas as dúvidas, inclusive durante a preparação e na escolha dos vinhos. Sensacional! Hoje me sinto mais confiante para escolher um bom vinho em Paris! Merci beaucoup et à bientôt!

Interesting, cultural value, Luiz has expert knowledge in French wines and the explanations were detailed and things I didn’t know even though I do have basic wine knowledge and have been to many different wine tastings. There were 4 of us and we all loved the experience. We felt connected and learned. Would definitely recommend!

Great experience!! Besides being wine expert, Luiz was also very knowledgeable on cheeses, which led to an even better experience for us as we had a variety of cheeses as well!
