Activity Overview
Discover the vinous spirit of medieval Paris with this unique walk. After strolling through this beautiful historic neighborhood, what could be better than refreshing ourselves with a wine tasting!

It would be a stretch to call the ten Gamay vines from Julienas in Beaujolais that are planted in the little park next to the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés a vineyard, but their presence connects us to the medieval gardens and the fields that once surrounded the church.

This discreetly modest vineyard with its roots in the same soil that gave life to wines in the Middle Ages affords us the opportunity of sensing the spirit of place in one of Paris' oldest and most renowned quarters.
