Along the way you will learn about the terroir, climate and unique conditions, the AOP system and most importantly, you’ll get to taste handpicked benchmark wines.

Haven’t been to a tasting before? Perfect! Your guide will take you through the steps of tasting wine so you’ll feel comfortable and ready to explore the complexities of each wine.

You will get useful suggestions to try for the same varieties grown in other parts of the world, so you can compare with your nearest local varieties

Have fun and make new friends

Wine is best shared between friends, old and new ones.

Events are relaxed and fun, so you never feel awkward about not knowing something.

Jump in to the experience and ask questions, especially if you are new to learning about wine.

Get the most out of a tasting experience by not only tasting.

Learn the foundations in an online course, then fully commit to the tasting without the distraction of trying to take in the foundations at the same time. The tastings are complemented by online courses and travel experiences, so you can get the full immersion with French wine.

In preparation for the tasting, you can download our tasting guide if you haven't already, and have a fun practise at home.

After the tasting, consolidate your knowledge by learning about the region in our online courses. This allows you to get even more out of tastings in future, and just focus on your experience in the glass.

That said, you'll get a lot out of only doing the tasting, so enjoy!
