Must Visit: Great Wines Fair, Paris

September 28, 2012 by

The Great Wines Fair, or Le Grand Tasting as it’s referred to in France, at the Carrousel du Louvre is a wine event that can’t be missed if you’re in France in December.

This annual celebration of all things wine hosts over 1,000 winemakers from vineyards throughout France. Attendance normally soars somewhere around 20,000 during the event.

For winemakers, it’s a chance to display new wines and get noticed on the French wine scene. For locals and tourists, it’s a chance to taste and buy some of the best French wines during for the holiday season. Aisles upon aisles fill the Carrousel du Louvre and crowds gather quickly to sample over 2,000 wines.

The Great Wines Fair takes place throughout December (from around November 30 to January 10). One-day and two-day passes can be purchased for the event starting at 20 euro.
