Ampuis, the ”capital” of the northern Rhône Côte Rôtie district, is not big so you will not miss Le Bistro de Serine on the main street in the middle of the town. It is a wine bar and restaurant and they also have a wine shop. The exclusive focus is of course the wines from northern Rhône, and there are many of them, not least from some of the top growers, Pierre Gaillard, Yves Cuilleron, Jean-Michel Gerin and François Villard, who is a well known northern Rhône “bande de copains” who also happens to own the bistro.
Good food, well prepared, clearly a notch up since the change of ownership some time ago, a lunch menu for 19 euro.
