Packed with bottles, from floor to ceiling, lovers of natural wine are sure to find many labels that they recognise. La Quincave is a small, relaxed wine bar, where, curiously, they don’t serve wines by the glass. I suppose the logic is that if the wine is good, you shouldn’t need a small pour!
The vibe is very rustic and informal. There are no tablecloths or sleek wooden bistrot tables; but you feel at home straight away.
La Quincave is managed by the the very welcoming duo of Fred and Audrey (ex-wife of Christian Binner, the Alsatian winemaker – in case you didn’t know.)
The wine bar proposes a limited menu, largely of charcuterie and cheese plates… but, as a little bonus, if you fancy oysters (during the winter months obviously!) you can pop next door to the fishmongers and they’ll bring a dozen freshly shucked mollusks to your table!!
Come with thirsty friends!
