PARIS HOTEL + CHEESE AND WINE TASTING IN AN UNDERGROUND CELLAR

Overview

Cheese and wine are the ultimate partnership and on this tour you will master the art of pairing these two delicacies during a tasting session in an underground Paris cheese cellar. Delve below Paris’ bustling streets with your professional cheesemonger guide to discover an underground treasure trove of maturing cheeses. Delicate goats cheeses and soft Camembert sit alongside impressive 35kg wheel stacks of Comté cheese, all in varying stages of maturation and ripening. The cheese stored in these cellars will vary depending on the time of year.

Listen as your guide explains the history, techniques and traditions of French and Swiss cheese production. Then it’s time for the best part of the evening where you get to savour seven soft, delicate cheeses, and follow your bites with sips of both light and complex wines, learning to appreciate the delicious, elegant and subtle flavours at play. Bread and fruit will also be provided with your cheese samples.

This special package also includes a 3 night stay at a well located hotel that offers an excellent base for exploring the city.
