What you'll do

What happens when one of Paris' Most Charming Wine Experts invites you & about 10 other jetsetters from around the world into one of the Oldest Wine Cellars in town? 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 Simon--an up-and-coming young 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 storied+sordid past, only recently reopened to the public after 100+ years, 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!

Simon, Stefan (two of Paris' most charming, up-and-coming wine experts) and I have set a table in our wine + cheese cave (among the oldest & most scandalous in Paris!) where we guide you through 1000 years of French Wine + Cheese culture. Every day, a thousand visitors come to photograph this building but only a few enjoy wine in the cellar! I'm Valkyrie, Curator of Frenchness--I love to share the best+ most unusual French cheeses with the whole world! I come from a family of pâtissiers, chocolatiers, restaurateurs. You can say I know food... 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--Simon graduated from the IFOPCA wine academy ... I hunt the most intriguing cheese
