Wine Tasting Experience

French language

Who knows how to taste, does not drink wine but savours flavours. Dali

An “initiation à l’œnologie“

zo Wijn zo Chic takes great pride in bringing a little bit of French culture to Amsterdam through exclusive, traditionally-made French wines that otherwise cannot be found on the Dutch market. We promise to take you on a journey through France as you learn from a local the fundamentals of wine tasting and wine making. As the French put it, an “initiation à l’œnologie“ in the skillful art of distinguishing between complex flavors and personally assessing the wine.


Tantalize your taste buds

Alongside the premium wine selections we offer traditional French delicatessen treats such as:
• Terrines charcutières
• Rillettes
• Bio vegetarian pâtés

The wine tasting is a fun, educational, and unique experience designed to give enthusiasts an opportunity to inhale the aromatic fragrances and to let the wine tantalize their taste buds.

You will also get handouts with practical information to help you practice at home to become a wine connoisseur!

Wine Tasting Experience

The wine experiences offered by zo Wijn zo Chic are meant for both private individuals and businesses, for groups of 6* to 12 people. They are available from Wednesday to Sunday in the afternoon (from 14h30) and the evening. In the weekend, the session can start earlier. They can be organized at home, at the workplace or at any other convenient location (quiet, with enough light and odour free for a better appreciation of the wines)

*6 persons in Amsterdam and surrounding  / 8 people in the rest of the Netherlands

IF YOU WISH, YOU CAN ORDER THE WINES AND THE DELICATESSEN AT THE END OF THE TASTING.

 Do you have any special wishes (e.g. you are with less than 6 or more than 12 people, or something else)?
