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 […]

Le Vin Chai Moi, Paris 1 – BKWine Pick

Luc Menier is the sommelier and Sébastien Farré is the chef. Born and raised in the same village, in Chinon in the Loire Valley. Now they are both at the cleverly named and very nice restaurant Vin Chai Moi, just off Place de la Madeleine. They used to have a restaurant in the 20th arrondisement […]

Pinxo, Paris 1 – BKWine Pick

Pinxo is run by Alain Dutornier from the Michelin-starred restaurant Carré des Feuillant, just a few blocks away. The decoration is very Spartan with a Japanese touch. The first thing that strikes you with the food is the presentation: very modern, very slick and it too more than a hint oriental. Choose e.g. the mi-cuit […]

Elegant but relaxed atmosphere that is a mix of classic and modern. Very good food of course. Set menus […]

L’Ecluse, Paris | BKWine Pick

There are six L’Ecluse wine bars in Paris, and that it is a “chain”, albeit small, can by some be seen as a negative. But in this case they are ambitious and focused, without being complicated or sophisticated. They also have excellent opening hours, which can be particularly good for overseas visitors who are not […]

Le Domaine Léopold, Paris 1 | BKWine Pick

This is a very nice wine bar/restaurant on the already restaurant dense rue Leopold Belland in the 2nd, just a stone’s throw from the market street rue Montorgueil. In summer time they have a big and calm ‘terrasse’. The menu is short but with a good selection of typical wine bar food made from fresh […]

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 […]
