Latin Quarter Unbottled!
This tour takes you on an insider's journey to some of the best winebars in the city, tantalizing your tastebuds and awakening all your senses. Starting in the second oldest park in Europe where we discover one of the city's hidden vineyards, we make our way past the spot where the Abbaye Saint Victor once stood and where the wines of Paris were stored until the 1950s. Our first tasting is in another hidden vineyard, held outdoors. The Latin Quarter undoubtedly has the longest wine history of any neighbourhood in the city. From the vineyards planted by the Romans on the Montagne Saint Geneviève, maintained and expanded by Cistertian monks, through the Abbaye Saint Victor, the wine storage of the Halle aux Vins and the taverns of the Place de la Contrescarpe and the rue Mouffetard, wine has been part of daily life for more than 2000 years. Somewhat later than other quarters of the city, the natural wine movement is slowly taking root and bringing with it a renaissance in innovative cuisine. Evening and afternoons only.
