The Wine Tour is being led by an English speaking wine enthusiast, who is passionate about wine and Paris. He will introduce you to 4 or 5 bars and cafes which locals frequent, and where you will have wine 'tastings', including interesting selections from smaller producers. You will also explore this historic district and its famous buildings and sites on your walk.
Meet at the bottom of the picturesque rue Mouffetard with its history, myth and mystique and home to Hemmingway. After your first glass of wine we pass Saint Medard, a church founded in 1140, and see the bar from filmed in the movie "Amelie" as you head up the hill towards the Pantheon, a massive temple commissioned in 1744 by Louis 15th and built by the architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot. It was originally a church, but under the revolution it became a burial place for the honored men of France. It houses the bodies of Voltaire, Rousseau, Mirabeau, Marat, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola.
Arrive at a small local wine bar which looks like an old Parisian bistro with tiled floor, wooden chairs, and old black and white photos on the wall. Afterwards make your way downhill and pass the Church of Sainte Geneviève built 1492-1626 noted for it sustained glass windows, as well as the famous Sorbonne University and rue de la Huchette home of one of the oldest Jazz Clubs in Paris.
As you approach the Seine you will see Notre Dame before arriving at your next tasting that will take place at a Specialist of Bordeaux where you'll lose the notion of time, perceiving not only the authenticity of the decor, but also that unique atmosphere that can only be found in places steeped in history!
End the afternoon at a small traditional bistro where the service is friendly and the walls are covered with old advertising posters from the bookseller's stalls along the river.
