What's in our tour?

The Paris Food and Wine Experience is a chance to enjoy two of France’s great contributions to civilization: food and wine.

First we explore the Montorgueil food street in search of fine foods. Montorgueil – at the center of Paris’s largest walking district – has been called the movie set of Paris because it is the picture-perfect neighborhood. Because of its food stores and restaurants, it is a street full of Parisians all day long.

On our visit, we walk the food stores: the bakeries, the cheese shops, the specialized dessert shops, the butcheries, the fish stores, the wine shops, the fruit and vegetable stores. We meet the purveyors, we pick the foods we want to sample. And of course we keep stopping to eat and sample.

After “eating your way through Montorgueil”, you enter an old, vaulted royal wine cellar next to the Louvre to discover the art of wine making. You discover the fine art of ageing wine, you learn how to piece textures and scents together. It is an experience for all the senses: the smell, the touch, the sight and of course the taste – for in the end you consult with a maitre sommelier to pick what glass of wine you will drink.

You can also enjoy your French Wine Experience on another day if you prefer to split your time.

Your guide is a true ‘foodie’, with a Parisian’s knowledge of the various foods and wine you may be interested in. As a born-and-raised local your guide also has plenty of insider’s insights to share.
