This is an absolute delight to find in a small medievil town like Banon. Banon is a wonderful authentic small town in the lower alps and this wine bar is an absolute find. The wine selection is amazing and the cost will absolutely surprise on the value side of the equation.

Take the advise of the host and have your drinks by the glass. Don't order a bottle as you will miss out. Just ask the host to provide the style of wine your in the mood for or provide him with a moving agenda throughout the sitting which is what we did! He will open bottles to suit your selection and each will be wonderful. We paid an average of 5 Euros a glass - what a steal for the quality of wine we tried and almost all came out of fresh bottles just opened for us.

Finally you need to try the food served on platters. The truffle ham is divine and the small accompaniments are just as great. Really worth a visit and I assure you that you will want to return.

This is a couples and friends experience. You will not be driving home ... there are no cabs so the designated driver has to behave. Take my advise get a baby sitter and a pick up ride ... its worth it.

A great experience!

Fantastic experience : a blend between a no nonsense wine shop and a restaurant, with on top a genuine warm service. And almost forgot...in a super location. The house itself, but Banon on its own is worth the "detour". To be recommended to wine lovers, food lovers, and life lovers!

If you are in Banon you have to pay a visit to Sandrine and Pierre-Edouard at Les Vins au Vert. They serve excellent local wines, great local charcuteri and Banon cheeses. The cosy bistro is popular among both locals and visitors! Go say hi! :-)

Our bed and breakfast hosts (Jean Claude and Marie Francois Liebert at Maison d'Emma in Cereste) recommended we have lunch in this wine shop that happens to serve excellent food. We ate there on two different occasions. The plat du jour was served on a piece of slate and included two types of goat cheese, ham with truffles that was unlike anything we had ever sampled, another serving of sliced meat, servings of soup and vegetable souffle that came in small mason jars, and a pate on toast. Wines by the glass were whatever the owner decided to open that day - typically from local wineries - and were very good. Prices were remarkably reasonable considering the quality. Les vins au Vert is open Wednesday through Sunday for lunch. My apologies for writing this in English rather than in French.
