An alphabetic list of independent merchants and retailers of wines posted on this site.



  • Caves Caprioglio, Rue de la Prefecture, Nice (Vieux Nice).  The website is bare apart from the location map, but if in Nice it’s a must visit.
  • Cave des Oliviers (website remains under construction), 13 Rue 11 Novembre, 11170 Montolieu, Aude, pas loin de Carcassonne, proprietor Adrian Mould, an extremely knowledgable Englishman [, 04 68 78 29 97, mobile 06 22 54 15 08], excellent range of wines of Languedoc-Roussillon, now Occitanie.
  • Caves Notre Dame, Bèziers, also at Grabels, Sète and Montpellier.
  • Des Cévennes à la Camargue, Rue du General Bruyere, Sommieres. A good range of quality wine from the region.
  • Maison des Vins du Minervois, Homps, Aude.
  • PBF la Decouverte du Vin, Rue Marx Dumoy, Sommieres.
  • Vinophilie, Montreuil-sur-Mer, in the town, near the Citadelle; from basic to premium, an eclectic range, the best merchant locally. I recommend this quiet B&B in the centre of town – L’Art du Temps.


  • Conad Supermercato, Latte, near Menton.  One of a small Italian chain, just across the border from Nice/Monaco.  Worth a visit for an eclectic range of Italian wines, cheeses, sun-dried pepper and aubergine, and everything else Italian, all of good quality and price.  Note that the location on the linked map is incorrect, it is on the left hand side of the road (from France) on the tight bend in the middle of Latte.


  • Okhuysen, Haarlem, The Netherlands, a must visit when in Haarlem, for their wide eclectic range.
