Lavinia is a great and huge wine store. Three floors full of bottles, it felt like I was in heaven. You can strawl around for hours watching all those beautiful bottles, carafs, glasses and other gadgets. You can taste certain wines as well, but you need to pay for that. There are wines you can taste 3 cl for €5... More

Stopped by to cruise the collection of wines and spirits. Thought the wine selection was excellent although missing some of my low end favorites as well as a noted absence of cotes du rhone rouge. What was most impressive was the selection of distilled beverages. The wall of whiskey is most impressive including a magnum size of Jack Daniels. Their... More

We stayed in an apartment in Rue de la Roquette 2 years ago and although the place looked nothing from the outside there was a lovely big garden inside. We had a tiny balcony which overlooked the garden with the resident rabbits. Even though the area was lively it was lovely and quiet after a day sightseeing. We loved it... More

I don't know much about wine, but had a list of wines to get for everyone to take home. This place had them and millions more. My wife was as excited to be here as she is in a shoe store! The staff spoke English and were very helpful.

I went to find Egly Ouriet Champagne, that I have not been able to find elsewhere. Lavinia had all blends from this small interesting vineyard in Champagne. It is an excellent champagne with more concentration on Pinot Meunier. For Champagne lovers I recommend you try it is very well priced as well.The wine shop is beautifully laid out and real... More

Recommended to go here and was astonished at the number and type of different wines and spirits. We went upstairs to the restaurant which was almost full, a great atmosphere. We chose some food and then the sommelier chose the wines for us to go with each meal and the taste was superb. With the next there was another wine... More

Wine shops across Paris had referred us to Lavinia to find unusual wines that we sought. We were blown away by the selection, professionalism, and knowledge. I found a wine I have been searching for for a year (working with the US importer and even traveling to the Loire to find it). It was here. We were able to buy... More

Lavinia is without comparison. It is regaled as the greatest in Europe and by some as the top wine store in the world. It is amazing. Leaving for Paris Tuesday and will spend an afternoon there....again.

After several weeks of touring and tasting French wine in the Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne areas of France, I knew I had to send French wine home. As I learned there are not many wine shops in Paris that can legally export wine to the US for the average vacationer. After some online research and with the assistance of the... More

On our last day in Paris we wanted to find a place to find some wine to bring back home. We stumbled upon Lavinia. After the friendly staff helped us buy our "cards" we headed downstairs (wear the cheaper wine is) to test some wine. I don't remember the gentleman's name, but I really wish I could, He was so...
