Natural wine, snacks to soak it up, rowdy crowds and dancing bartenders. One of the original natural wine hangouts in Paris. Bottles also available for purchase to go.

The annual festival of barely-fermented wine is almost upon us, so we’ve rounded up a few ideas to help you get your headache on.
Free dégustation of Vins Nouveaux direct from the barrel, “ni filtré, ni collé, ni sulfité…” Winemakers to include Mas de l’Anglore, Chassorney, Morentin, Foillard, Foulards Rouges.

The wine bar and the wine shop have teamed up to throw what will undoubtedly be the best Beaujolais party in town. According to Spring, winemaker Jean-Claude Lapalu will be “coming from the Beaujolais with a barrel of zero sulfite gamay, a funnel, 25 cases of empty bottles, and a corking machine. We’ll have the soup and the saucisson.” Our advice: get there early if you want a taste of soup, buy your own bottle so that you don’t wait in line at the bar, and be ready to dance in the street between the two locations.
