What you'll do

Price is per screen, with a maximum of 2 people per screen.

Discover Sancerre and its famous wine from the comfort of your own home!

We will learn how to taste wine, including how taste itself is just a small part of the whole sensory experience. You'll be amazed at what you can discover before you even take a sip!

We'll talk about Sancerre's unique 'terroir' and the surprising effect this can have on what you're tasting. We'll also discuss the area's fascinating past and talk through the secrets you can uncover just by looking at a wine bottle's label.

We'll also unearth the great mystery of Châteaumeillant's (a neighbouring wine-producing area) Roman wine amphoras (terracotta wine holders) - a unique find which has puzzled historians for many years and remains unanswered even today.

Finally, I'll share with you my top food and wine matching tips with some fun activities, as well as touching on the difference between old and new-world wines. So you'll know exactly what wine to have when you're at a restaurant or cooking a special meal at home.

The recommended wine and cheese (and salt and sugar) are not mandatory, but they do increase the fun!

Spots are per screen, with a maximum of two people per screen.

I can accept bigger parties upon request.

I run a wine and food tour company called Goûts du Berry in the Centre Val-de-Loire, France and have received a full house of 5-star reviews on both TripAdvisor and Facebook.

Goûts du Berry was brought about through a shared passion of two of life’s most wonderful things: wine and cheese.

Based in Le Berry, an old province of France which now crosses over the départements of Cher, Indre and some parts of the Creuse, I offer vineyard tours around Sancerre, Reuilly, Quincy and Châteaumeillant.

For the first time ever, I'm also offering you the chance to take part in an online wine experience on Airbnb! I love to help people discover the local wine and can't wait to share some fascinating facts and wine and food matching secrets with you!

This was a fantastic experience to share with friends! We have done some few wine tastings in the past, but we definitely learnt a bit more in this virtual session from France! Recommended!

My wife and I had an intimate session with Peter learning about Sancerre and all it’s gems, secrets and history (not only the wine!). Highly recommend or people who loves wine, food pairing, France or just curious! We thoroughly enjoyed Peter’s well prepared session and looking forward in returning with our friends for a remote experience!

Learned about a new area and a little more about the differences in grapes and taste which was interesting. Also how to properly appreciate the wine with a simple pairing of food which made a huge difference in my attitude of just drinking a glass without food sometimes.

Peter was fantastic. He was very kind and extremely knowledgeable. He was well-prepared and made us feel at ease. His descriptions were clear and professional, and he was able to provide a highly personalized experience.

This was such a fun and interesting wine experience, Peter clearly knows his stuff! I particularly enjoyed the tasting notes and how different things, whether it be food or your surroundings, can change the flavour of the wine! I just wish we could have been sipping our Sancerre in the evening sun looking out over the vineyard, but for now Zoom will have to do, and it did work very well.

This was a great wine tasting session which we thoroughly enjoyed. Peter was very informative about the history of wine in the Sancerre area and all the factors involved in producing the final structure and taste of the wine. I would highly recommend this experience!
