Paris By The Glass
Courses / Programs
Paris By The Glass provides wine tasting classes, food courses, walking tours and day trips in Paris, France, the Champagne Region, and the Loire Valley.

Our food and wine tasting programs are conducted in English by Preston Mohr, a native English speaker.

Eating and drinking locally is the most enjoyable means to learn about a place and the best way for you to take a little bit of France home with you.

After joining one of my wine and cheese tastings, epicurean Paris walks or a customized private day-trip out of Paris, you will better understand France through its gastronomy.

Most importantly, it’s fun to sample, sip, swirl, share, try and savor with other passionate food and wine lovers, while making new friends along the way.

Our courses are designed for beginners but even the most seasoned wine buff should not be bored.

Sharing in cultural differences and the sheer enjoyment of something new and different that you may have otherwise not been bold enough to try.
