Welcome to O Chateau!

    At O Chateau, we strive to make wine more fun and its culture more accessible. And let’s face it, it’s a great job. We love what we do.

    O Chateau is a place that is open to everyone. To people who like wine, who love it, who are intrigued by it, who have no clue about it… Open to all those who feel some sort of an attraction to wine. We have a zero snobbery/zero jargon policy.

    Our focus is to serve you the best possible wine and to give you all the keys you need to gain confidence and knowledge.

    Since its inception in 2004, O Chateau has serviced more than 150,000 people from all over the world. We have arranged events for a vast portfolio of corporate clients. We have been named “Best Wine Bar in Paris” and have been recipients of two “Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence”.

    No matter what the trials and tribulations of operating a small wine tasting company in Paris may be though… Day after day, tasting after tasting, our greatest pride is still that our clients tell us that their time at O Chateau was one of the highlights of their trip to Paris. And that means the world to us.
