Wine / Liquor / Beer

o The supermarkets offer great value in wine shopping. They have upgraded their offers considerably over the years and give the local co-operatives a real run for their money.

o We, however, prefer the local co-operatives as the majority of the unbottled wine (ie ‘bag in box’ or ‘pump container’) contains no sulfites – great for no head ache!

o Beers must be bought at a supermarket. There are three main sizes 25ml (‘sippies’); 33ml (‘boks’); or 50ml (‘beeg ones’ or ‘gros’). Draught beer is ‘pression’

o Pastis – the local liquor. There are many varieties and some pretty dubious labels with quality to match. Stay safe, protect your health and buy Pastis Marseille 51.

o Sweet wine – no slither of toast smothered with foie gras is complete without the local sweet, muscat wine. Any wine from the Beaumes-de-Venise region is what you’re after and serve at room temperature.
