On our journey we stop by several of Paris’ most famed wine bars…
Chambre Noir, whose dimly lit atmosphere adds to the ambiance and makes it a great spot for a romantic evening or a casual catch-up with friends.
Cave Michel, which has been around since 1947 and has a great selection of local fermented grape juice. The bar also offers a variety of charcuterie and cheese plates.
La Buvette is a popular wine spot located in the trendy Belleville neighborhood, and has a rustic and cozy atmosphere.
Aux Deux Amis and Fro Paris offer a bustling scene, and serve a variety of natural and biodynamic wines, which readers of herein season three know all about. We also sip at Le Mary Celeste, a laid back cocktail bar popular with locals that also serves natural wine.
