Great wine tasting!

Geraldine, wine expert and owner of Wine Domini, invited myself and a small group into her lovely Parisian apartment for a wine tasting…classic verses natural french wine. The evening was a lot of fun. We learned the difference between the classic process of wine making versus the organic and natural process. We got to taste the difference and understand how to pair each with food. Geraldine served a beautiful dinner to accompany the wine tasting experience. She is extremely knowledgable and fully bilingual. I highly recommend Geraldine for a tasting or a day trip to a neighboring wine region. She’s a delight.
