Bien sur the culture practically dictates that people drink all sorts of wine in Parisian cafés, restaurants, and bars and purchase them in the city’s wine shops. But it is a little known fact that wine is actually produced within the city limits, in Montmartre. It’s just off the city street, surrounded by buildings, in the same district as such iconic structures as the Basilica de Sacré Coeur and Moulin Rouge.
