Getting to know us

Our story

Named after the Georges Brassens’s song ” Les tanins d’abord “; our wine bar in Montpellier became possible after having gathered around us our childhood friends. They all got involved to create a warm, comfortable and welcoming location in the town center promoting quality products in a cozy atmosphere.

Our passion for wine has lead us to travel to a handful of French vineyards, for several months, to assemble a very personal wine list. This rewarding experience has enabled us to discuss, confront our opinions and learn more about wine while discussing with dedicated wine growers – as a result we are enthusiast to share with you a selection of more than70 wines.

Always interested in the «terroir» approach, we then went to Lozere and Aveyron (two hilly nearly regions north of Montpellier) to choose our charcuterie and cheese selection focusing on proximity and authenticity – both values that are essential to us.

We are proud to work with high-quality products from top regional artisans that are established very close to where we are located.
