A trip highlight

A great balance between beginners and more advanced wine drinkers and cheese eaters. We highly recommend experiencing this delight!
A must do!
RogerMarsh, Mar 2023
Erwan was exceptional! He had a knack for including the entire group & making the experience enjoyable. We learned a lot about the different regions of France in relevance to wines & the differences in ordering wine as Americans vs Parisians! Great lessons & I highly recommend this your. His location is also close to the Eiffel Tower if you’d like some pictures.
Best introduction to French wine and cheese
Sara_U, Mar 2023
I LOVED this wine tasting with Erwan. I love it so much that we’ve done it multiple times and recommend it multiple times. This is an incredibly thoughtful wine tasting for small groups that makes it easy to connect.
We learned how to dissect French wine menus, which makes restaurants far less intimidating now. We tried five different French wines and cheeses from various regions of France, including both whites and reds. Erwan sells the wines (and others!) for very reasonable prices. (There was a Grand Cru for 22€!) He also ships to the US.
You will get a list of the wines and cheeses provided, which is great if you want to try things on your own.
Best experience ever in Paris!

This was such a great experience! Our host was knowledgeable and hilarious. He was so patient with questions, and he gave us great illustrations of the wines and regions of France. We would absolutely do this again!
Great host, wonderful experience
Martine_D, Feb 2023
Erwan was a convivial host and freely shared his knowledge and passion with the group. He expanded our knowledge of French wines and opened the door to French cheeses, in a setting that felt more like an evening with friends. Wonderful experience.
Great French wine tasting experience
Marie_C, Feb 2023
I booked this wine tasting as a surprise for my aunt on our trip to Paris. Erwan (the owner of the Secret Wine Door) was very friendly and passionate about wines. He also explained wines in a very “easy to understand way” for French wine novices like ourselves. I enjoyed the cheese pairings and that the class was just long enough to keep our interest. I ordered a case of different wines from the tasting and some others from the shop after the tasting and just received it (it took a good 3 weeks to ship to America) and will be enjoying these soon. Overall, great experience.
Wine and cheese experience
Anne_W, Feb 2023
Erwan gave a very interesting and informative overview of wine in general and French wine in particular and we are now better able to understand a French wine list. Good pairing with different French cheeses also. And thanks for some good restaurant recommendations! Very relaxed and enjoyable session.

Wonderful class, we learned a ton about French wine and cheese. We loved the intimate setting and small size of the class. We only wished we had done the class at the beginning of our trip vs. the end. We would have enjoyed more wine 🍷!
