A cute, shoe-box-sized wine shop on rue de la Roquette. Pietro Russano, whose name you might recognise from Italian bar-restaurant-épicerie the Retro-Bottega, is the force behind this new opening. (Aug 2014.)
Refreshingly relaxed and unassuming, you’ll find an interesting selection of French, Italian and other European (e.g. Greek) natural wines, as well as beer and high-quality Italian cheeses, charcuterie and breads.
Rummage around amongst the fun and colourful labels. Roughly speaking, the prices range from 5 to 30 euros a bottle but you can pick up some great bottles at 10-15€. Discounts are given if you buy three bottles of certain wines. Beers from the local Parisian brewery in the Goutte d’Or. The mozzarella and burrata deserve special mention too. Yum!
