The Walks

Vines

Each tour begins with a living vineyard (sometimes only a few vines), which connects us to the soil of Paris and its 'terroir'. Though all of the vineyards we visit produce grapes, only Montmartre produces wine that we can taste. In all other cases, the included wine tastings in wine shops and wine bars focus on the varietals that were planted in the Paris region historically.

Wines

By following this trail of vines, each tour covers a different neighbourhood and its wine history, offering you the chance to discover another side of Paris' history. But the tours don't stop there. The real wines we taste (natural, organic, biodynamic, always accompanied with something to nibble) inspire a connection with Paris' wine history that allows our imaginations to journey back through time.

Food

We're as serious about food as we are about wine and so everything we serve is organic, seasonal and as local as possible. All of our tastings include generous quantities of real, fermented breads, exquisite cheeses and raw and marinated vegetables. Nuts and other nibbles are included when tasting sparkling wines. We can also accommodate intolerances and allergies. Just let us know when booking.

Though all of the 'vineyards' we visit produce grapes, only Montmartre produces wine. The wine tastings include wines from other parts of France that use varietals grown or comparable to those grown in the Paris region in the Middle Ages.
