My name is Olivier and I will be more than happy to share my passion for wines.During this class you will taste 5 different wines in a beautiful old cellar located in the heart of Lyon.You will discover my selection from different vineyards surrounding Lyon such as Burgundy, The Beaujolais and The Rhône Valley.Different terroirs, different  grapes varietals and different wine making processes....And many good reasons to complete your understanding of French wines.So come and enjoy the party...cheers !
From the fruit forward reds of the Beaujolais to the full bodied Syrah of the Rhône valley, your palate and your nose will be exercised to distinguish the quintessence of the varietal, the winemaking process and the type of aging.easy to drink and fresh, tannic and complexe, elegant and spicy, the words to describe wines are numerous and seem confusing at first sight but everyone can do it after a short efficient training and you will be happy to demistify what is behind the bottles.I have been studying wines in Burgundy and in Paris for almost 5 years and more importantly I have been sharing this passions with travelers from all over the world. I am looking forward to meeting you.I will pick you up in Place Bellecour just beside the big building of office du tourisme at 9:45.
