Tuesdays to Saturdays only (5.30 pm until 8.30 pm)
Without a doubt I love this evening experience!
If you are looking for new wine bars (bistro à vins) and hyped-up boutique establishments with expensive wines and elaborate menus – this is not your tour… because these are not the wine bars you will be exploring on this Gourmet and Secret Wine Bar Tour.
This tour will show you the classic wineries forgotten in time and still loved and frequented by the locals since after the war. Where locals are taking in the old-world ambiance of having their favourite wines by the glass with a platter of charcuterie (cold cut local hams and cheeses) before they head off for dinner or home.
Different – and very authentic – hidden wine bars, as well as a food market are visited on this tour. The visit takes you along for sampling wines from the classic to bio-dynamic locally produced wines in France.
This tour is not given by a sommelier, but an enthusiastic guide who shows the secret wine bars off the beaten track and to enjoy the local ambiance.
The tour includes the history of wine, pairing of wines with regional cuisine and cheeses,
reading the labels, local appellations, trends in the French wine industry and anecdotes.
For the gourmet part of the tour, the walk also takes in one of the oldest markets in Paris, a lively atmosphere with tastings along the way allowing also shopping for local and European produce and delicacies. (Great for gifts to take home!)
