Loved it!

We had a great champagne tasting at Geraldine’s apartment! It was one of the highlights of our trip. Geraldine was very generous, nice and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the champagne  selection and the small bites served with the different champagnes. Everything was homemade! (the gougères, the salmon rillettes…). I definitely would recommend to anyone traveling through Paris to check out Wine Domini! Thank you Geraldine!.

Entertaining and informative!

I’ve had the pleasure of attending 3 events with Geraldine: 2 wine-tasting/dinners and 1 day trip to Chablis. Each time, Geraldine made the event delicious,entertaining and very informative. I appreciated the casual and relaxed atmosphere while Geraldine made the wine-tasting…

Great wine & champagne experience! (from TripAdvisor)

Geraldine is  most gracious and we enjoyed a relaxing evening with her. We sampled several classic French varieties of wines and champagnes in very Parisian bars. Geraldine does a fantastic job of choosing  exceptional wines and champagnes from small growers and then blending useful education through review of a very smart presentation that caters to those with very little knowledge of wine yet still offering useful insights to more savvy enthusiasts! Well done!
