Bercy Vines - 95€ per person*

Bercy was once the largest wine market world-wide.

 

There is little left of the bustling wine cellars that received the wine barrels from around the country, arriving daily by river barge via the vast network of canals that join the rivers. But the connection to this area's wine history lives on with vines that still flourish in the park.

 

The modest vineyard planted in the Parc de Bercy, produces enough grapes to make a few hundred bottles of wine a year. It is also the location of the 'chais' or wine cellars where the grapes from Belleville and the Butte Bergèyre are turned into wines.
