Bistro Alex, Vinipolis, Florensac – BKWine Pick

Wine tourism is en vogue and the wine co-operative in Florensac in the Languedoc has made some big investments to become more welcoming to passing tourists. It is located near the motorway between Montpellier and Perpignan so it is easy to reach. They have opened a big and modern wine shop where the floor is made of glass to give you a view of the wine cellar and oak barrels below.

They have also opened an excellent restaurant called Bistro Alex. The chef behind the cooking is Jean-Claude Fabre who previously was in charge of the Chez Léonce Michelin starred restaurant. One of his specialities is fish and seafood and nearby is the Bassin de Thau which is one of France’s biggest sources of fresh oysters. The cuisine is innovative and very good. To accompany the food there are plenty of wines from the co-operative. Try for instance the delicious viognier.
