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 wine cellars? It's the PairingParty! 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 Stefan & Simon--Paris's much-loved 'cave men' (and Stefan's one of the hottest-selling painters in town right now, he's too modest so I'm bragging about him ;p )--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 our caves w/ storied+sordid pasts, 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!
