Every appellation should open one of these. An épicerie-wine shop-bar-restaurant that opened in 2009, Comptoir de Genès has been consistently popular ever since, following a simple concept of selling only wines of the Castillon appellation (or rather, to be pedantic, the Castillon section of the Côtes de Bordeaux appellation). You can buy the wines to take out also. They hold regular theme evenings, such as ’Organic wines of Castillon’.
