What you'll do

Join us for this exceptional experience as we meander through one of Paris' oldest quarters and explore another aspect of the role the vine still plays in the urban landscape. An exclusive wine tasting (with cheeses, bread and seasonal vegetables) on the Ile Saint Louis reflecting the flavours of the varietals planted here will complete this unique outing. During the Middle Ages, Paris was covered with vineyards and produced wines that were renowned throughout France. The hidden vineyard of the charming Joseph Mignaret garden in the heart of the Marais is a surprising discovery. The 'Marais', which means swamp, drained in the 12th century, primarily produced market vegetables, but there were vines here too. An extensive vineyard attached to the Hotel Royal Saint Pol produced wines in the Middle Ages, so the history of the vine here is as old as the quarter's history. This tour operates both during the day and in the evening. The evening tour however does not include a visit to the vineyard, though the tour still begins there.

I began my life in France in a vineyard and have been exploring the wines of France ever since, because vineyards tell stories. The story of the wines of Paris takes us deeper into an understanding of the city and how wine helped it grow. Living vines and living wines... As a long-time resident of France, I have had the privilege of exploring vineyards all over the country and continue to organise tailor-made wine tours for small groups. I am a travel consultant, wine professional and teacher with extensive background in luxury travel, both as a guide and as a creator of tailor-made tours.
