“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
― Ernest Hemingway
Hear, hear! I’m a lover of wine ! One of my new favorite place to discover great wine is the wine shop Faubourg Wines. I’ve just finished up a tour of Spain, Portugal, Malta and even a bit of Italy. I tried wines from each country that I visited and now I look forward to returning home to New Orleans and continue my life long study of wine right here in the Big Easy.
Faubourg Wines does not carry mass-produced wines with strong brand recognition, so I usually enjoy taking their recommendations and have found many enjoyable wines through their knowledgeable staff. Faubourg Wines offers a large selection of naturally made wines, including biodynamic, organic, low-sulfite and even vegan selections. Most of the time, people are looking for wine that costs less than $15. For this reason, they always provide at least 100 wines in the shop under $15, in a wide range of types & styles. They do this better than anyone else, and are proud of it. The also offer Free Wine Tastings on Wednesday 6-8pm.
