Discover French wines and at the same time experience the historic Right Bank districts of Paris and its famous buildings on this walking tour.
Start your wine promenade at a small, local bistro behind the old department store of Samaritaine. Here you will try the first white wine looking for the freshness in the first wines tasted. You will then walk towards Les Halles, called by Zola the belly of Paris, and a former market with its many restaurants and bistros that catered to the thousands of professionals visiting the Marche des Halles before its destruction in the 1970's. Here you will stop at another local bistro with authentic ambiance for a glass of wine like the Muscadet 200 or Sancerre 2003.
Walk through Les Halles to reach the cobbled old market street of rue Montorgueil, a street that has retained its original atmosphere, with restaurants, bars and lively activity just behind the church of St-Eustache. Enter a bistro that has been renovated to keep old customers happy, but also develop a new, younger clientele. This bistro is well known for its quality selection of wines. There you will enjoy reds, such as Beaume de Venise 2003, or Morgon vieilles vignes.
Onward to a fine food store and wine bar. Here you can taste Moulin a Vent La Coudriere 2003 as well as purchase foie gras and other fine food products. Pass the Place des Victoires built in 1865 and now home to Paris design talent, and on to the 19th century covered Passage Vivienne built in 1823 in order to visit one of the most famous and well-stocked wines stores in Paris. This is the final point and you can choose to go in and do a tasting on your own if you wish.
