In France, there is now a retail chain that sells only bag-in-box wines. It is called Bibovino and the first one opened in Paris a year ago. The range is expanding all the time and more and more AOP wines are launched. Most recently it was a Crozes-Hermitage.
Bibovino specializes in organic and biodynamic wines. The selection is made by Bruno Quenioux, a well-known wine personality in France, previously responsible for the prestigious wine cellar at Lafayette Gourmet, the food department of Galerie Lafayette.
Bruno search for appropriate producers across France and a small part of their production is then put in identical BIBs. You can find at Bibovino for example one of our favourite Beaujolais producers Domaine des Terres Dorées. If you prefer a round box instead, you can buy a Bag-in-Tube.
There is one requirement though, whether you buy a BIB or a Tube: You must always taste before you buy! Read more bibovino.fr. (The photo is not from that shop.)
