Located in Boulogne’s pedestrianised shopping area, Tresor de Vin, a family business, run by Jean-Luc and Agnes Malkowiak. The duo say they carefully hand pick their wines from vineyards and wineries in Alsace, Burgundy, Rhone, Loire and Champagne. They bill themselves as ‘le cave des passionnes’, (a wine cellar for the passionate) and certainly, this shop has been their dream come true when they finally opened it four years ago, in a former tobacconist.

Jean-Luc learned his trade while a wine buyer for both Auchan and Leclerc and has brought his talents to his own independently run cave – wine shop. He believes that being an independent means you can uphold your own standards and bring your own personality. He is so passionate in this belief that he has become the national treasurer of the FNCI – Federation National Cavist Independent.

Jean-Luc has created a pretty environment and is happy to chat to you about which wine to buy. His advice though, is to consider the occasion (a celebration? perhaps a fizzy rose), the company (romance or formal), the season and whether or not you will be drinking the wine with food.
