The Roman arena in Verona

Enoteca Zero 7, Verona restaurant | BKWine Pick

Enoteca Zero 7 is a small wine bar, café and wine shop. Will find it around the corner on a side street from Corso Porta Nuova just outside the Portoni della Bra. The perfect place to have a glass of wine before you walk into the old city for dinner, or just a quick espresso […]

The Temple d'Auguste et de Livie in Vienne, similar to the Maison Carre in Nimes

A treasure trove of Languedoc wines: Cave du 41 in Nimes | BKWine Pick

We have a big hole in our wine cellar. Or so it seems. We need to refill the spaces on the shelves so that we have something to drink for dinner. We have always had a soft spot for the wines from the Languedoc so my thoughts wandered off to a wine shop we visited […]

A wine shop in Paris

Organic wines from Lavinia

Lavinia is one of our favourite wine stores in Paris. Whatever you are looking for, it seems that you find it at Lavinia. If you want, for example, to have a tasting with organic wines, you will find lots of them at the Lavinia wine shop, at different price levels. At a very reasonable price […]

Cave l'Oenolimit

Cave L’Oenolimit, wine shop, Bordeaux | BKWine Pick

A new (2009) wine shop open seven days a week until 22.00. A very well chosen but not extensive selection of wines. Good choice if you want to go shopping in the evening after visiting vineyards. Located just off the Place Fernand Lafargue. Open every day (even Sundays!) from 10.00 to 22.00. Certainly merits a […]

Wine bottles in a shop

5e Cru – Cave à Vin & Table d’hôtes, Paris 5 | BKWine Pick

It looks like a wine store and it is a wine store. But also a very inspiring place for a lunch or a dinner, amongst wine bottles and wine cases. The selection of wines is amazingly good, if you – like us – like small, ambitious producers with a penchant for terroir and organic viticulture. […]

Lavinia, vins fragiles

Lavinia opens new shop in Paris

It is not an exaggeration to say that Lavinia has revolutionised the wine shop scene in Paris. Their wine shop is very centrally located, close to Place de la Madeleine. There you can find 6000 wines and spirits (for comparison, three times as many as the Swedish monopoly Systembolaget offers). The shop extends over three […]

New wine department at Galleries Lafayette with focus on Bordeaux

Galleries Lafayette, the big department store in Paris, has just opened a new wine department. It is entirely dedicated to wines from Bordeaux and looks as if it will have a very big selection of bottles (judging from the photos). If the focus will be exclusively on the big & famous or if they also […]

Ma Cave Fleury, Paris 2 – BKWine Pick

Almost exactly one year ago Morgane Fleury opened the doors to her ’cave éco-logique’ in Paris called Ma Cave Fleury. (The celebration was on February 13 so we say Happy Birthday a bit late.) Ma Cave Fleury is both a wine shop and a wine bar – small but very charming. “Fleury” is the well […]

Les Vignes de Bacchus, Trèbes | BKWine Pick

If you happen to be boating in a barge along the Canal du Midi we recommend a pit stop at the wine bar / wine shop les Vignes de Bacchus in Trèbes, just east of Carcassonne. They have a good selection of producers, focused on the nearby appellations of Minervois and Corbières. The owner of […]

Cave Saint-Marc, Villeneuve-lès-Avignon – BKWine Pick

If you want to discover the vineyards of southern Rhône the small town of Villeneuve-les-Avignon is a good base. It’s almost like a suburb of Avignon, just across the river, but actually an old town in it’s own right. When the Pope was residing in Avignon in the 14th century the cardinals lived in Villeneuve […]

Some Paris Wine Shops | BKWine Pick

This is Wine Blogging Wednesday and we’ve been asked to write about some interesting wine shop. We’ll actually talk about more than one though. The first to mention is the “incontournable”, that you just cannot not mention: Lavinia on Boulevard de la Madeleine: Very broad range of French and international wines. A special section on […]

Vin sur Vin, wine shop Nice | BKWine Pick

An extensive selection from all of France with a predominance of the new stars from Southern France, but surprisingly few wines from Provence (!). Also (mainly) a wine bar and restaurant. Vin sur Vin, 18 bis rue Biscarra, Nice, tel 04 93 92 93 20.

Vins & Compagnie, wine shop Brussels | BKWine Pick

Also a small shop (but unrelated to the one in Paris as far as I know) where you are wise to ask for assistance to get some overview of what’s on offer. Ask friendly Paul van Dievoet who has a good selection of both French and other wines. Some “summer wines” I recommend: Schieferterrassen from […]

Vins & Cie, wine shop Paris | BKWine Pick

Do you ever go to Boulogne to buy your wines? No? Well, you should try it. It’s a small shop but with a good selection, including some Italian wines. Many good Southern French wines: Domaine du Nouveau Monde in Languedoc (4.20 € and 8.70 for cuvée prestige); Domaine Brana in Irouléguy (16.77 € for the […]

Systembolaget Hötorgshallen | BKWine Pick

Systembolaget Hötorgshallen, Stockholm: If you happen to go to Stockholm this is the most pleasant place to shop for wine. It’s still the Monopoly of course, but you won’t necessarily feel accused of unsocial behaviour by shopping there. And it’s in one of Stockholm’s best food halls.

Galeries Lafayette – Lafayette Gourmet | BKWine Pick

Galeries Lafayette – Lafayette Gourmet, boulevard Hausmann, 75009 Paris, +33 (0)1 48 74 15 35: A department store is not the first place to think of when it comes to buying wine. But the wine shop at GL has an exceptional selection. And even a penchant for biodynamic producers

Le Nez Rouge, wine shop, Paris | BKWine Pick

One of the few wine shops in Paris with a good selection of foreign wines. They are also good at smaller, not-so-well-known French producers. Try for example Domaine de Triennes. Le Nez Rouge, 11 r Alexandre Cabanel, 75015 Paris (Metro Cambronne), +33 (0)1 47 34 87 40:
