Where in the wine world was he? Prize edition


Reader Steve De Long sent in this photo from his travels. Where was he?

I’ll check back on Tuesday morning. Of those who guessed correctly, I’ll throw your names in a hat to be eligible to win one of Steve’s excellent little Wine Tasting Notebooks! I have two to give away!

  1. Le Mesnil-sur-Oger

  2. is that the little garden behind Sacre Couer?

  3. I remember on my first visit to Paris, reading that a small vineyard remained in Monmartre — one of the oldest in France. This looks like it.

  4. La Vignes de Montmartre


  5. Paris, France- the only vineyard in the Paris city limits.

  6. looks like I’m an hour late and a dollar short, but that small blue placard on the fence? It’s most definitely a Paris street sign…blurred, but unmistakable. So I’ll have to say Monmartre as well.

  7. One of my friend’s recently visited Paris. He tends to agree with everyone on Monmartre. So Monmartre it is!!

  8. I just visited there in November–Montmarte vineyard

  9. Montmartre, without a doubt. I love coming around the corner and seeing that vinyard!

  10. oops.. upon re-reading I see I spelled Sacre Coeur wrong– sorry about that! It is funny, I was wandering around Paris in December, staying in Montmartre, looking for a place to picnic and this is where I sat… probably the same corner the pic was taken on– I instantly noticed the pic from that lovely day.


  11. Monmartre, bien sur!

  12. (That’s Mon_t_martre, of course.)

  13. 48°53’17.78″N ; 2°20’24.56″E
    Rue Saint-Vincent – rue des Saules


  14. My best guess is also the vineyard of Montmartre behind the square.

  15. Great stuff! I guess it was too easy! Thanks for the links Daniel and Raphael!

    Even if it was easy for many, I still think it is neat that there is a tiny vineyard in Paris proper. It’s great many of you have checked it out too!

    With 11 correct answers, I generated two random integers using random.org…and the winners are:

    Lacey and Jill! Come on down! Or hit “contact” and send me your mailing address and I’ll send out the tasting notebooks to you.

  16. remark : this is not the only place, but the largest, with vineyards in Paris. One other place near les buttes chaumonts

  17. Thanks, Ludovic! Send in a picture!

  18. oH it took me a wild to see that comment Dr Vino ! I’ll take a picture soon 🙂
