Beautiful little wine cave with excellent selection of local wines
May 2019 • Family
We were lucky enough to be staying in St. Paul de Vence and La Petite Cave de Saint Paul was a true gem. We visited many, many times. They were helpful with choices for our meals and were very knowledgable about the local wines. We really enjoyed La Petite Cave.

Conceited salesman
Apr 2018 • Couples
The salesman spoke English while saying goodbye to two Americans leaving. I said Bonjour not thinking he thought I spoke French. He mumbled something to me very fast, so I couldn’t tell if he was speaking Chinese, French or English. I didn’t want to insult his mumbling and paused. He seemed offended by my pause and mumbled something again. I apologized I didn’t understand him. He snarled, “Oh you speak English. You know we are in France so we speak French. I never....” He was so haughty and mean. We will see about shipping cases of wine from a nicer place in Nice.

Great selection
Feb 2018
This is a cannot miss, the staff provides great service and is helpful and friendly . The stock is very large covering all price points. We have been to California winemakers but this is something that you can see in the French wines and the staff is wonderful.

Much Potential
Oct 2016 • Couples
I wish we could have spent more time here. It was so fascinating to see, very traditional, and filled with what I'm sure was great wine. We really wanted to get something, but it just didn't make sense with our travel schedule, the hot day we were having, and the impracticality of moving the wine and storing it at our hotel. That being said, it was a great stop!

Wine, cognac and whisky galore!
Apr 2017 • Couples
We stumbled upon this little cellar while exploring st-paul-de-vence. They were in the middle of a tasting with a small group but we were able to slip in and shop. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in recommending some regional wines to try. I was also able to snag a bottle of lavender liquor that is delicious. One of the reds they recommended we brought home with us and just recently opened. It was wonderful, I wish we would have bought more!

I thought I knew it all until I visited La Petite Cave.......
Jun 2017 • Friends
I've been to many a chateau, wine tasting etc... all over the world. Friends wanted to come here, and, to be honest, I thought it was just going to be another pleasant wine tasting experience. Well... I was wrong (unusual that I admit that). La Petite Cave is sublime in its simplicity. Yes you have to be 5 people for a 'tasting' but lets face it, not that tough to find 5 people who want to drink wine. We booked for 6 people but turned up with 8 and Romain was happy to accommodate. One of the extra guests REALLY knows his wine and has probably tasted more than his fair share of the extraordinary wines of the world, but still, he learned something and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Romain was flexible, we could have changed what we wanted to taste at the last minute, he really knows his stuff and is genuinely passionate about wine. Also his English is perfect. There was no push to sell, on the contrary, we were pushing to buy after tasting some of the excellent local wines! I went back a week later with pretty much the same people, thats how much we enjoyed it. My days of shopping for wine at the supermarket are over! I now know I can get better quality at the same price or better thanks to La Petite Cave.

Highlight of our visit to St Paul de Vence
May 2017 • Couples
We popped in here for a quick tasting and education session with Roman whilst in St Paul de Vence, thinking we'd be back in Nice in an hour or two. What we experienced instead was a highly enjoyable experience that truly became the highlight of our visit to this stunning historical town and possibly our entire stay in the Nizzardo.

We chose a bottle of delicious, biodynamic Cote de Provence wine and embarked on a wine tasting master class with Roman. I honestly learned a tonne from Roman, he was super knowledgeable and passionate with absolutely no pretention. The tour of the cellar was also enriching.

If you find yourself in St Paul de Vence you must visit Roman!

Great find all around!
May 2017
A small place, but small in the best possible, historically interesting way. A must-see just architecturally. But more importantly, speaking as a wine enthusiast and many-time visitor over the past month, there is a terrific, thoughtfully-curated selection of not only great regional/local small producer wines, but many of the best wines from all over France, including Champagne! With new things coming in all of the time. And we received an incredible amount of friendly, patient guidance from Romain, an enthusiastic and knowledgable expert in the art of wine and food. Not to miss.

No Wine Tasting?
May 2017 • Couples
Not sure if we read these reviews correctly - but when we stopped by around midday we were told they don't offer wine tastings anymore (and that we should rather visit the vineyards). Also, if he had to open a bottle - he wouldn't do so for anything less than a €100. Well thanks for nothing sir haha.

Hello Roland, I don't think you understood how we work for the tastings, we ask that a minimum Fee be paid of 100€ based on 5 participants (5x 20€) this is for three wines + local provence specialities. The wines served during the tasting are from small and high quality producers who sell their wines from 20-35€ a bottle in our shop... I kindly recommended to you to visit local wineries since I considered this more in correlation with what you were looking for. If you are again in St Paul don't hesitate to contact us in advance in order to organize something for you. I wish you a pleasant time in our beautiful village and country. Best regards, Romain CALZIA Sommelier

Fun and tasty wine tasting
Apr 2017 • Family
I love to bring friends here for wine tastings. Romaine shares his good humour, knowledge and delicious wines with his guests. Never any pressure to buy and there is always a good wine bottle he can recommend for any pocketbook. Easy to stop by to pick up a wine bottle for a certain meal. I have never been disappointed.
