Paris Cheese Tours – Our Top-Rated Fromage Tastings

We never miss a chance to sample fromage when we're in the City of Food. Charles de Gaulle is famous for complaining that it was impossible to govern a country with deux cent quarante-six variétés de fromage. All those cheeses, made throughout the country, eventually find their way to Paris, which is why there are over 250 fromageries in the city. Get inside the Paris food culture by joining a wine and cheese tasting during your visit. Here are five offerings from our cheese platter.


Latin Quarter Wine & Cheese Tasting

This is a great way to get inside the culture of Paris life and food — a wine and cheese tasting in the cellar where the cheese are aged by a Master Cheese Affineur. It's a unique & unusual tour — you don protective clothing (to protect the aging cheeses) and do your tasting in the cellar, right among the cheeses.

You not only get to taste some of the most famous cheese of France, but you learn all about their history, lore and production techniques. You are also served wines and fruits that compliment the wines. The number of tours monthly are very limited, so be sure to book well in advance. Takes place in the Marais.


Cheese & Wine Tasting Lunch in Paris

Go the distance and spend ninety minutes at a wine tasting and sit-down lunch at one of the best wine tasting rooms in Paris.

This is a fun and different way to have a meal in Paris. Arrive at noon to the 17th-century wine cellar near the Louvre and taste six different wines from six different wine regions of France. You learn about each wine and about the food that's served with it – regional cheeses and meats from all over France. Takes place in a wine tasting room near the Louvre, in central Paris. À votre santé !
