Tasting details


Tastings operate rain or shine and we’ll be indoors 100% of the time. The private tasting room is located down a flight of stairs, so is not wheelchair accessible. If you are interested in a tasting, but have accessibility issues, please contact me to see what can be arranged.

 

Tasting Location


Exact location and detailed directions will be emailed along with your order confirmation. Situated near the city center, it is a 15 minute walk from Place du Capitole and a 5 minute walk from the Line B Metro Station Jeanne d’Arc. Due to the alcohol consumed, I do NOT recommend driving. Please plan on walking, taking public transportation, or a cab/Uber.

Good to Know


What's included

At least 4 bottles of wine (if you’re a large group, we’ll have more), plus 4 cheese pairings and bread. You have the option to order a small or large charcuterie platter, if you would like meat, as well (25 €/45 €). Plan on having a late dinner, as this tasting is quite filling. Leftover wine? No worries! You can take any unfinished bottles with you after the tasting.

What to wear or bring

Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended. The tasting room table is standing height, so you’ll be on your feet (though, a few chairs are provided, if needed).

Dietary restrictions/food allergies

The tasting is normally vegetarian (unless you order the extra charcuterie). I am happy to accommodate the follow diets with advance notice:

  • Gluten-free (NOT Celiac)
  • Pork-free charcuterie platter

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions. I ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 48 hours in advance! If you have any questions regarding dietary accommodations or would like to see if I can accommodate other restrictions or food allergies (I often can – please ask!), email me directly at jessica@tasteoftoulouse.com before booking.
