Why book a wine tasting in Lyon instead of a vineyard tour?
If you want to increase your knowledge, whether you're a connoisseur or a novice, my wine tastings are for you.
Visiting wineries is awesome, I know! But do you ever come away feeling like you really leveled up your knowledge? I hear people tell me again and again how they always seem to forget everything they were told on winery tours. This is because sampling 10 of the same wine type isn't a great way to learn about wine as a whole.
At Lyon Wine Tastings, I present you with a comparative tasting, which is how I learned about wine back in 2008 during my undergrad at Oxford when I joined the Blind Wine Tasting Club.
Each of the wines chosen for our comparative lineup are totally different, so we can deeply delve into wine tasting, winemaking techniques, grape varieties, terroir, and more.
By comparing different grapes and different regions, you expand your palate and knowledge way more than you do by only trying one type of wine.
If you do have time to do both while you're in Lyon, a tasting with me will set you up for much deeper learning for the next time you go on a winery tour.

“Incredibly informative and unpretentious and I came away with a better understanding of how to analyse wine than I've ever got from a tasting before. Enormous fun.”

Hi, I'm Wine Dine Caroline
I've been in the wine business for 15 years so believe me, I know how confusing French wine can be! I first got into wine during my studies at Oxford University, where I competed in the Varsity Blind Wine Tasting match.
I'm a native Californian who moved to Lyon in 2017 to pursue my passions of eating lots of cheese and drinking great wine. Mostly, I loved Lyon because it was smack dab in the middle of three of my favorite wine regions: Beaujolais, Burgundy, and the Rhône!
Now you can experience all of the wines of Lyon in one afternoon, without wasting a moment of your precious travel time in the car!
Other than running fabulous tastings and tours, I have taught at the prestigious Institut Paul Bocuse, have a podcast, and a youtube channel.

Praise for Lyon Wine Tastings
The wine tasting with Caroline was a phenomenal experience! Won't ruin the surprise with too many details but it was a great experience from start to finish; very fun and educational! Have done wine tastings before but this was definitely a unique experience and really enjoyed both the wine and getting to hang out with Caroline!
