Getting there: Cardinal Lemoine Station is on line 10 of the Paris Metro in the 5th arrondissement.

 

Paris Under Vine

 

Little known to tourists is the fact that Paris is home to numerous—albeit diminuative—working vineyards. Spread about the city are many so-called "secret" vineyards, but the four main plots are as follows.

  • Parc de Bercy (12th Arrondissement)

  • Clos de Belleville, Parc de Belleville (20th Arrondissement)

  • Clos des Morillons, Parc Georges-Brassens (15th Arrondissement)

  • Vigne de Montmartre (18th Arrondissement)

Other names include Coteaux de Suresnes (the city's only overtly commercial production), La Vigne de Bagatelle (in the 16th), and Vigne de la Butte-Bergeyre (in the 19th).
