The Jardin des Plantes is often missed by visitors to Paris, and yet this side of the Latin Quarter offers some of Paris' greatest treasures.

Jardin des Plantes - tasting only

  • Left Bank history comes alive in this unique wine walk.

    One of Europe's oldest parks, the National Botanical Gardens of France was created in the 17th century on land that was used for mass graves during the plague. In 1635 it became the King's vegetable garden, which lead to it becoming the focus of botanical research and the home to naturalists from around Europe.

    The vineyard, planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay, does not produce wine, but provides a link with the earliest studies in ampelography as well as a scientific laboratory of viticultural study.
