Ce vei face

As winter sets in and it gets darker ever earlier, we gather around the warmth of candle light and the convivial mirth of sparkling wine. The modest vineyard of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with its roots in the same soil that gave life to wines in the middle ages, affords us the opportunity of sensing this spirit of place in one of Paris' oldest and most renowned quarters.

Starting with a visit to the vineyard, we trace the area around the church where the abbey once stood, discovering anecdotes about the quarter and what life was like in the middle ages. As the day grows dark, we light lanterns to add a bit of atmosphere and warmth.

Carrying on to the Marché Saint Germain on the site of the historic 'Foire Saint Germain', a fairground founded in the middle ages, we set up for our tasting of sparkling wines and seasonal delicacies and a shared moment of sweet and savoury delights.

I began my life in France in a vineyard and have been exploring the wines of France ever since, because vineyards tell stories. My story has been associated with wine for over 30 years, so join me! You can also book my other experiences here https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/7211110

Unde vei fi

The walk begins in front of the Eglise Saint-Germain-des-Prés before a visit to the little vineyard next to the church. Tracing the history of the Abbey, we walk down the rue Bonaparte, along the rue Jacob and through to the Place Furstenburg. From the rue de l'Abbaye to the rue de Buci we discover the sites of the moat and the Philippe Auguste wall before crossing the blvd Saint Germain to the Marché Saint Germain for our tasting.

We loved this tour! Geoffrey is a fantastic, generous guide who is very knowledgable about wine and food. The first hour was spent walking around St Germain, learning some of the history of the old abbey and the neighborhood. Then we stopped into a delightful market and wine shop, where he set out candles, bread, several types of cheese, and a few seasonal deserts. We tasted two wines (one sparkling) and had a pleasant meal with great company. Geoffrey speaks perfect English and French and knows Paris extremely well. After the tour he gave us recommendations for dinner in the area near the tasting as well as the best places to eat near where we were staying. He is a wonderful tour guide for a charming tour. We would gladly go on another tour with him anywhere.
