Pilgrim 3-Vineyard Cycling Tour
During the Middle Ages, Paris was covered with vineyards and produced wines that were renowned throughout France. The vineyards on this tour, unknown to most, will take us into the heart of medieval Paris. There is an almost mystical link between the living vines of today and those of the past. As you cycle over this historic ground, the medieval landscape comes to life as you are invited to imagine another time.
From the vineyards of the Hotel Royal St-Pol, through the King’s botanical garden, the Abbey Saint Victor and the Halle aux Vins to the Roman Arena, the Clos Bruneau, the Clos de Laas and the village that was once Saint-Germain-des-Prés, we develop a comprehensive overview of medieval Paris and begin to see the city with different eyes.
You will taste wines along the way that will connect you with this rich past, bringing into focus the spirit of place.
Come with us for an exceptional visit and explore another aspect of the role the vine still plays in the urban landscape. Exclusive wine tastings reflecting the flavours of the grapes planted here, accompanied by personally selected hors d’oeuvres will complete this unique outing.
