Exploring Paris can be a great journey of food and wine (and more recently cocktails too). If you’re looking to buy a bottle of something that you may not be able to find back home or you’d like a bottle of wine for your hotel room or Airbnb, here are nine stores where the wine pros love to shop.

"It's one of the best cavistes in Paris and it's kind of an institution. You can't skip it."
