Editorial Reviews

Review

"This utterly charming book profiles 50 of the best wine bars and shops in Paris. Some of the establishments have been around for more than a century where the old French stereotype of the cranky waiter in a white apron lives on. But there are also ultramodern shops, the design sleek, the waitstaff dressed in casual jeans and sneakers. Some shops are narrow, crammed with dusty bottles and wooden barrels, while others are spacious and airy...The gorgeous photography by Caroline Rose captures the mood and ambience of each establishment." --The Chicago Tribune


“A beautifully photographed collection of the best cavistes in the city. The author points out some of the best wine values and where you will find inventive light meals with which you can uncork your purchase and enjoy it on the spot... Having this book in your pocket is almost as good as touring the city with your own sommelier.” –The Paris Traveler

"Be sure to pick up a copy of The Best Wine Bars & Shops of Paris, Pierrick Jégu’s fun and informative journey through some of the oldest, smallest and most convivial cavistes in the City of Lights." --Imbibe Magazine

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not helpful if you are trying to find a wine bar to actually drink wine there as opposed to buying a bottle to go. There is no differentiation between the two. We were unable to tell which places actually had wine to drink.

Purchased as a Christmas gift for my wife who just LOVES Paris. The intention was to give her an armchair fanciful reading tour of her favorite place. I didn't intend for it to be a take along tour guide book. Pretty pictures inside.
