In praise of table wine

As many authors have said, wine is man's best friend when consumed in moderation and his greatest enemy when taken in excess. It is the companion of our lives, our consolation in times of sadness, an adornment of our prosperity, the main source of our true sensations.

It is milk for old people, a balm for adults, and a channel for food-lovers. A great meal without wine is like a ball without an orchestra, a clown without make-up or an apothecary without cinchona... As soon as the wines start flowing into the glasses, every heart opens up with trust and merriment, everybody leaves gravity behind, your neighbour becomes your friend... and providing the host makes sure the wines are served gradually, ending with the strongest, the guests around the table will soon form a meeting of jolly brothers and genuine friends.

– Alexandre Grimod de La Reynière (1758-1838)

Guest wines

The guest sommeliers' mandate includes providing waiters with training on new products. This helps us ensure that every teammate has continuous wine-related training. Always with our clients' interest in mind, Piz'za-za constantly tries to attract epicureans by offering good wines at a resale price that is below average.

AT THE END OF THE EVENING, SHE comes home WITH YOU.

You order a bottle and you can bring it home if you don't finish it.

Alexandre Le Blanc, sommelier and Piz'za-za's DG.
