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!

And you see how the rind is coming away from the centre...? It's a perfect example of a surface ripened, bloomy rind #cheese.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
