Wines of France

  • The Arts District, Downtown, Los Angeles 530 Molino St. #218 Los Angeles, CA 90013 United States (map)



The Arts District, Downtown, Los Angeles

The wines are sensational, some great examples.

France did not invent wine, but they inspired the great wines of today and serve as the role model.

In this program we will taste the greatest hits of France side by side and go deep on:

  • the history

  • the place

  • the grape

  • and the production methods

Professional Wine Educator Paul Sherman (formerly of Valentino Restaurant) will be ironing out any confusion, assisting the advanced students with "markers" and introducing the newbies to the world of great French Wine.

It is valued over $1000 for this program and we will add wines if this program sells out. Sign up early for the best prices... early bird prices are guaranteed lowest at wineLA.


  • a petite cheese plate

  • written notes

  • educational presentation

  • as much fun as we can squeeze into this 2.5 hour showcase.


Paul Sherman is a 30-year veteran Sommelier of the Los Angeles restaurant scene during which time he worked with Restaurateurs such as Michael McCarty (Michael’s), Joachim Splichal (Patina) and Piero Selvaggio (Valentino-20 years).

Today Paul holds the title of "Advanced Sommelier" through the Court of Master Sommeliers and is a wine instructor at UCLA Extension and wineLA.
