This was a great experience! Geraldine is a great guide and really helped us with what they wanted to learn. It was a fantastic way to learn how certain cheeses are made and what wines to pair it with. Her choices made me understand why they went with certain cheeses and I did enjoy the champagne and the wines!

Truly unique experience!
We really enjoyed Geraldine. She was not only very knowledgeable, but fun! The pairings were lovely. We spent time explaining why some pairings work, others not. Her apartment is warm and cozy. Would highly recommend.

I have been to several of Geraldine’s tastings at her place and we just had one at my home with some friends. They are great tastings!! She is very knowledgable about the wines …. and has some lovely ones to taste. The cheeses were fabulous …. several I hadn’t tried…
