Mémé Germaine, Paris 1924

In Vino Gildas, Luxembourg 2008

The boutique is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm.

Identity

Like every shop, In Vino Gildas has a specific history, reflecting a passion for wine for generations.

Granny Germaine, Gildas Royer's great-grandmother, was the first in 1924 to open a wine shop on Place Saint Charles in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.

It is with this same ambition that Gildas created its Vinothèque in 2008, established in Luxembourg, as an exclusive, authentic place recognized by lovers of good wines. Events and tastings are regularly organised, in a public or private capacity by companies or for special occasions.

You will be able to discover wines but also spirits, dishes, glasses and accessories. The wines in this case are imported from 17 producing countries and more than 55 winegrowers are represented in the Vinothèque.

Following recurrent customer demand, the "The Safe" was created in 2018. In Vino Gildas can thus offer its customers the opportunity to store their wines in a trusted cellar and close to the shop.
