Lyon Wine Tastings is run by expert sommelier Caroline Conner, otherwise known online as Wine Dine Caroline. Hi, that's me! 

I've been living in Lyon since 2017 and started Lyon Wine Tastings in 2018 after seeing that there was no wine tourism in the actual city.  I created a tasting class to show you all of the amazing wines of the region.

I loved hosting my tastings but obviously the pandemic meant I had to stop for a couple years. And now that tourism is back, I honestly just don't really want a parade of folks in my house anymore so I have shifted to day and multi day tours of the Beaujolais, the Rhône, and of Lyon.

 

I have a YouTube channel, am active on Instagram, teach wine to French students at a local culinary school, host big corporate events, and French food and wine retreats.

 

Hanging out with me is the best, you've never had a wine tour like this before! Somehow I always get the most amazing clients too, it's just never not an awesome time.

 

My availability is very limited these days cause I'm doing tons of other stuff too, so organizing earlier is much better!

About Caroline Conner

Your Expert Wine Teacher

Hi! I'm Caroline, and I love teaching people about wine. 

I've been in the wine business for 15 years so I know exactly how confusing and intimidating wine can be.

Originally from San Francisco, I got into wine during my undergrad in archaeology & anthropology at the University of Oxford, where I did competitive blind wine tasting. After that I stayed in London to study cooking at Le Cordon Bleu, and then sold wine to bars and restaurants for a couple years.

I did my Wine & Spirits Education Trust Level 4 Diploma in 2012, and am currently a student of the Master of Wine (the hardest qualification in the world)!

I love cooking, karaoke, skiing, and Lyon. 

Want to hang out? Let's do it!

Here are a couple of my favorite recent reviews:

"Caroline’s Lyon Wine Tasting tour was perfect. Caroline is super friendly, bubbly and welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. She speaks English, which made the class easier for us to enjoy. As a wine novice, I was nervous I wouldn’t fully enjoy the experience, but Caroline did a great job explaining a lot of new concepts and provided a wide variety of wines for us to try. Tasting is in Lyon, which my party preferred as we didn’t want to spend a full day on a wine tour in wine country. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to learn more about wines from a friendly expert!"

"Amazing virtual wine tasting with Caroline (winedinecaroline.com) and a great way to have a neat and different experience amid the Covid-19 lockdown! My good friend surprised his fiance with a wine tasting and invited a bunch of us along. Caroline was extremely knowledgeable and not pretentious in her download of knowledge on wine - she made the experience enjoyable and personable and the time flew by. It felt like we were all actually there in person! Caroline put in the extra effort by doing research on each of our particular wines in advance. What I appreciated the most was the practical tips for us casual wine drinkers! 110% recommend!"
