This looks like a run-of-the-mill souvenir shop on the ground floor, with a small range of local wines, but there is a basement cellar with some real treasures. Top local wines and some of the best names from the Rhône Valley and elsewhere, at sensible prices. The shop changed hands at the end of 2009, and is now run by a former wine shop proprietor from Marseille.
