Contact Our School

Paris By The Glass:
Paris By The Glass offers wine tastings and gourmet food walks in Paris, vineyard tours and other delicious adventures in France. Taught in English by Preston Mohr, our tastings, tours and classes give you the chance for an intimate view of French food and wine culture.

Credentials & Qualification:

After many years of working in short-term apartment rental management, our guide, Preston Mohr, began studying at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) at the Ecole du Vin in Paris.

Preston completed the 2-year Diploma from the WSET in June 2013. He is also a very proud Associate Member of the Institute of Wines and Spirits (AIWS).

Small Group Classes:
Our groups are much smaller than the other wine tastings and tours out there. Smaller group allows for us to help you learn the maximum amount of information in a comfortable and intimate setting.

Based on my North American background and language skills, we are able to better understand your background, needs and desires.

Student Testimonial:
"The Wine/Cheese Master class taught by Preston Mohr was excellent! Preston was very knowledgeable about the different wines that paired well with cheese. The cheese/wine was delicious."
- Demi

"Our docent was AMAZING (Preston Mohr) – he went out of his way to speak in terms the kids would understand, he explained things that crossed our path even though it wasn’t part of our tour, he came prepared with hand sanitizer and a knife for tastings, and even advised us on things to do for the rest of our day, with detailed instructions. The tastings were delicious and plentiful!"
- Jennifer

"He not only does wine related tours and classes but has the knowledge and flexibility to personalize private requests. We have used his expertise to help us organize private dinners for six in our apartment."
