What you'll do

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

It's the PairingParty!

EXCLUSIVELY on AirBnB. <3 and nowhere else.

-This is different-
Not a 101 'class,' (we favor conversation over note-taking or powerpoints) 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!

-What the big deal is about French Wine and Cheese-
We explore 4-6 different wines, carefully curated by the Curiosity Collective + Cave Men Wine Club--including a blind-taste test of one unexpected, mystery wine! Paired with 5-6 cheeses, some rare +hard to find, even in Paris!

-Rarefied surroundings-
Underground, in caves w/ storied+sordid pasts (an ZERO BATS), only recently reopened, 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.

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

Stefan, the most interesting Wine Expert in Paris ;) and I have set a table in our wine + cheese cave (among the oldest & most interesting in Paris!) where we guide you through 1000 years of French Wine + Cheese culture w/ other curious jetsetters from around the world...Every day, a thousand visitors come to photograph the historic building in le Marais but only a few enjoy wine in two of most beautiful cellars!

We started the CaveManWine Club to bring a new way of tasting delicious and intriguing wines...We don't play by the rules -- No method, no guru, no teacher... ;) Zero snobbery allowed

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.

Into the cave!

Although we didn't get to experience the original location due to coronavirus, the wine and cheese tasting was still a lot of fun and was still in a cool underground vestibule with vaulted ceilings. It's truly a unique, one-of-a-kind experience! Simone was a great host and we could tell he loves getting to know people from around the world and sharing his passion for wine and cheese. We felt comfortable with him and enjoyed hearing his stories. When it's safe to travel, don't hesitate to book the experience and support this business!

This was my second time to Paris and this experience was the best of both trips! The group setting was small and intimate. The cheese and wine provided was a once in a lifetime taste!

I would recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in great conversation over some very nice wine and cheese...in one of the oldest wine cellars in Paris (what cool location!). A small amount of wine and cheese knowledge will definitely help you connect a bit more, but it's not required. We had champagne to start, then 4 cheeses paired with 4 wines, and one more wine with a macaroon to finish of the evening. We would have preferred little more structure. At times the conversation dominated, and the wine and cheese was ignored which made for some slow points, but overall it was a very nice evening!

STOP WHAT YOURE DOING. You would be remiss to leave Paris without experiencing Stefan, his insight, wisdom, and beautiful wines and cheeses. We made great friends, had rich conversations, and learned much along the way! This is a MUST-DO. Support Stefan and his local business!
