It is without doubt the smallest
vineyard in Paris, with 12 vines planted at the foot of the church
of Saint Germain des Près along the Boulevard St Germain. Close to the “Deux
Magots”, café of Flore and the Brasserie Lipp. It
used the Gamay grape as required for the cru Beaujolais. Produced
since the year 1000 in the Rhône region, its name comes from
a certain Julius Caesar who had passes by the area.
Since 1992, the brotherhood of St Juliénas des Près
gathers with a festive ambiance in the square of St Germain des
Près. You mustn’t confuse the members, dressed in
red and yellow togas with the disciples of Krishna still present
in the district. But there’s no Harry Krishna for the knights
of St Juliénas des Près.
