paris - école du vin

in paris, even though i went for a trade show, i arranged myself to attend a wine tasting at l'ecole du vin.  they run nice little operation and offer classes mainly at le cour st-émilion where wine used to be sotred and traded in the old days close to quai bercy.  you can find more information on by following this link ''école du vin'' and i really advise that you find out if they have any activities on your next trip to paris

the tasting was about ''grands crus de distinctions'' and the talk was offered by olivier thienot who was not only very knowledgeable of his subject but also very engaging and entertaining as well.
