Wine bars are still very popular in Montpellier, but in just a few years the city’s oenographic landscape has changed; some institutions have closed their doors while others are opening their doors and especially their bottles! Here is a subjective update of the places to discover to taste good wines:
Pousse pas mémé dans la vigne
Open for almost a year, this new bar offers the possibility to taste purely local products and adapted to all budgets. In addition to a great selection of wines and craft beers, you can accompany your glass with cheeses and charcuterie cut on the spot. Don’t forget to have a look at the safe room in the basement, the building is indeed a former bank 😉
