Combining naturally leavened breads and natural wines? That’s the very natural idea behind this beautiful bakery tucked away in an old stone alley, where the talented Vincent Gargneur keeps the people of the 600-person village of Mirmande happy with fine wines (Bock, Gramenon, Cunin) and artisan bread made with local flour – spelt, flax-sunflower, walnut-raisin… Chosen the day we went: a grandiose multigrain loaf with perfectly crispy crust and a dense interior, perfect for dipping into Nyons olive oil (from the Domaine Saint-Vincent) or topped with local picodon cheese, all washed down with a bottle of wine from Le Clos des Mourres. // Gwen Jacquère 

The hidden gem: The aforementioned multigrain bread (€8.90/kg).
