Cave Wilson is probably our favourite wine bar in Nice, this why when we are in Nice we go thrre, it has a great atmosphere, terrific wines and jazz!

Last night was special, my wife chose a great bottle of Cote du Rhone Village which went very well with our plate of local cheeses,  and we settled down to listen to the Seb Chaumont Trio.

If you like bebop played with fire and passion and ballads from the Great American Songbook interpreted with feeling this was the place to be. They were simply great, three skilled jazz musicians on the top of their game. Antoine and Nina have made Cave Wilson into a very pleasant sophisticated venue where you enjoy great wine and great jazz.  What's not to like?

My Husband and myself visited the Cave Wilson on Thursday 11th July 2013. On this particular evening there was flamenco music (two awesome musicians). We had the charcuterie board and polished off two bottles of wine.... Antoine was informative and accommodating (we had additional requests of changing some of the cheese and we also asked for fig jam) all of which Antoine was only happy to provide.

I will definitely be going back and have taken a batch of business cards to spread the word to friends that visit Nice often....

This is a fantastic wine bar and store. It is well worth going whether you just want to purchase wines and learn more about French wine regions - the owner was very informative & helpful or....if you want to enjoy a very nice evening of music, cheese & wine. We hunted this cave out based on recommendations and decided to book for the Saturday night when live music would be on (as it is most weekends). There is a small cover charge of 5E (presumably to pay for the music) - totally worth it. We had a beautiful & generous plate of cheeses, meats & bread - really top quality & shared a bottle of wine. The cave has a nice ambience & the music was FANTASTIC. We saw 2 guitarists and they were just amazing. We enjoyed it so much we are booking again for next Saturday. We will also return to buy wines before departing for home.

What a wonderful visit!!!! We got there right upon opening at 6p and the owner was wonderful in greeting us. Even though the kitchen did not open until 8p, he offered us an amazing meat and cheese platter that went with our bottle of wine - it was the best assortment of meats and cheeses we have had thus far!! Great atmosphere!! We even came back later for another bottle of wine and great live jazz (Saturday night). It was wonderful!!

A very pleasant way to spend a Saturday evening in Nice. Live jazz was great although perhaps a little too loud for the size of the room. Lovely food (boeuf bourgignon for my wife, assiette de charcuterie for me). But really it's all about the superb wines and the knowledgeable help provided in such a helpful and refreshingly non-condescending way by the owner. With two of our friends we had two bottles of Faugeres and left feeling very happy.
