February Events in Paris: World’s Largest Wine Tasting, Salon de l’Agriculture, Lady Gaga & More

HiP Paris Blog rounds up the top events in Paris this FebruaryMaja Petric

The doldrums of winter set in with the arrival of February but fortunately we can count on France to serve up some gastronomic delights to hold us over until the arrival of spring.

The month kicks off with a plethora of wine events in the Loire Valley that inspire Parisians to plan a weekend getaway to the countryside. La Dive Bouteille, which takes place on February 4th  to 5th, is the largest natural wine tasting known to man and brings together hundreds of winemakers from France and around the world. If the idea of that many people makes you feel claustrophobic, try the more intimate “off” tastings that happen during the same weekend in nearby Angers.

Les arts

Through February 19: Les Femmes savantes, a favorite amongst Molière’s work and a satirical criticism of the ridiculous préciosité that penetrated 18th century French salons, is showing at the Théâtre de la Tempête.

Through February 19: Chic! Une grande maison at Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine – a look into the history of Paris architecture, specifically the lovely hôtels particuliers that dot the city. Child friendly.

Through March 15: You may know Maxim’s for its resto and boutique, but they also have an exhibition space and this month “Moi, Sarah Bernhardt” is on show. Bernhardt, often thought of as the world’s first and most famous actress, paved the way for female performers to come. Now you can take a peek into her life and passion.
