La Petite Cave, Saint-Paul de Vence
La Petite Cave offers a wide range of organic wines and wines from sustainable culture and biodynamics

The main condition of a good wine is a good cellar

La Petite Cave is located two levels below street level and its walls are more than a meter thick. The temperature is constant between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius and the humidity is about 80%. The bottles are protected from the sun and are illuminated by special lights without producing heat. It provides ideal conditions for storing the wines.

The wines are carefully selected

All the wines on offer were selected during an organoleptic tasting where all senses are in use.  This strict selection of wines favours winemakers who respect ancestral traditions, their terroir and nature.

Wide range and so of local wines

La Petite Cave offers a wide range of organic wines and wines from sustainable culture and biodynamics. Wines from the nearby towns of Tourrettes-sur-Loup (previous Domaine Saint Joseph, now Domaine des Claus) and Saint Jeannet  Domaine Rasse) can be obtained.
