A breath of fresh air, both literally and figuratively! It’s true that the cool air inside this wine and spirits storehouse in the center of Sète is just lovely, the perfect place to escape the summer heat… Who’s behind Uva? A duo with plenty of experience under their belt: Mathilde Bayle, the winemaker, and Pablo Siranossian, the sommelier, who fill up bottles of their house wine and display wines made by friends. Near the three vats, the amphora and the winepress, you’ll notice eight different types of wine sold by the bottle, with everything from rosés and light reds to pét nats, white wines and orange wines… And among the living wines made by their friends: Ventu Ventu des Bulles, a rosé from Banyuls (€25), Rue de la Peste, a Carignan-Syrah combo from Julie Brosselin in the backcountry, a Marsanne from Opi d’Aquí (€18)… And you might be wondering, what exactly does Uva mean? “Grape” in both Spanish and Occitan! // Albert Gredinbar 

The bullet-proof bottle: Sumo, a Carignan and Cinsault blend sold at a very reasonable price (€12).
