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.

We were so looking forward to our time with Thierry and it was beyond anything we ever expected! He spent more than an hour and a half with us and customized the entire evening to our level of knowledge and areas of interest. We loved every single minute of our time together and hope to book another experience with Thierry in the future -- and visit his store in the Latin Quarter sometime when this is all over!

I learned a lot about French wine through this experience. Thierry encouraged me and the other participants to study wine independently. If you'd like to pay tuition for a sommelier certification, that would certainly be an option. However, you can learn a lot just by tasting, taking notes, and researching wine regions. If you've dreamed of becoming a sommelier, this experience is for you.

Thierry was very knowledgeable and happy to answer the many questions our group had for him. He also accomadated that one guest couldn't get a wine off the list so spoke about what he had managed to get.

Thierry was very knowledgeable, charismatic and made the experience comfortable and easy over Zoom! Would highly recommend for a date night, birthday celebration, or even a team bonding experience.

My family surprised my mom with this virtual wine tasting for her birthday and we had such a great time! Thierry was warm, able to share tasting notes that were personal to everyone and taught us a lot of new information and tricks along the way! Highly recommend.

A group of 11 of us took Thierry's wine tasting session as part of a virtual hen party and it was fantastic! The session is very well structured and covers a generic introduction to wine tasting as well as a really good level of information about the five wine regions, their wines and wine making. So, we felt like we'd learnt some interesting information as well as having a lot of fun! I have been to another online wine tasting session before and Thierry's was much better - clearer, calmer and more informed. Thierry was very patient (including with the arrangements and many questions before the session!) and welcoming - we hope to come and visit him in Paris one day!
