What you'll do

What happens when one of Paris' most interesting Wine CaveMen and about 10 global jetsetters go deep into one of Paris' oldest and most beautiful wine caves?

It's the Pairing Party--a convivial exploration of what the big deal is about French Wine & Cheese. A Safe Space from Wine Snobbery ;p

Not a 101 'class,' (we favor conversation over note-taking, powerpoints, or maps) this is an irreverent tasting party w/ other curious culture-seekers...Between laughs + shared stories, you'll learn why French Wine + Cheese is considered the best in the world!

We explore 4-6 different wines, carefully curated by a beloved Parisian 'cave man'--including a blind-taste test of one unexpected, mystery wine! Paired with 5-6 cheeses, some rare +hard to find, even in Paris!

Underground, in a cave w/ a fascinating history AND ZERO BATS, only recently reopened to the public, we dive into Parisian culture, too--you'll discover not only which wines to pair with that amazing cheese, but slices of Paris life + current events.

In the core of hip +creative Paris--the 'Marais' historic district--what starts with, 'cheers' becomes a dive into curated flight of rare + unusual cheeses, delicious wines--intriguingly tasty, to wild + strong, to a 'safe landing' of pure deliciousness! And ends with new friends from around the globe...together we explore France...by mouth

Every day, a thousands of visitors come to le Marais--the epicenter of fashion, nightlife and the historical district of Paris but only a few enjoy wine in our French Gothic cellar!

We don't play by the rules -- No method, no guru, no teacher... ;) Zero snobbery, we have an open attitude.

We believe that a 'good' wine is a wine that you like! But if you are curious, you are in the right place--we are true experts in the field... But we won't bore you with long discussions on tannins ;p

A great experience during a crazy time in Paris. This really took us out of the moment and into a world of community and lovely wine and cheese. We got to learn about each wine and cheese and share with each other. Also, lovely location to continue the night in the marais!

We, but especially my boyfriend, loved this! He’s never gone wine tasting before, but Simon was so knowledgeable yet not snobby which made the experience wonderful.

I could not have asked for a better Christmas gift nor a better memory to leave Paris with. Stefan made the night incredibly magical, allowing the group to develop their own relationships with each other and their own opinions on the wine and cheese. We had so much fun that the night ended up going 2 hours past the expected time, with a Stefan opening another bottle of wine and letting us enjoy the evening. We did not feel rushed, judged, nor unwelcome. Recommended this experience to so many people already. Would love to do it again.
