My fiance and I attended one of the many wonderful wine tasting workshops offered at Au Fin Gousier - and it was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip to France! The wine, the food, and the company was amazing! It was an incredibly valuable and informative experience - we would go back in a heartbeat, and strongly encourage wine lovers everywhere to visit this truly special place.

It began with an simple question of the man standing in front of the wine/spirits store/tasting room...Michel answered in English, recognizing our extremely bad attempt in Frence...his business, retail and wine tasting/oyster bar in the rear...graduate degree from Cornell, with an immense knowledge of French and American wines...we tasted and bought...worth the stop...and he recommended Moulin de la Galette for dinner!

The owner is very engaged and welcoming. Very helpful with tremendous selections.
Try the Jura wines he carries. Clean, dry wine from France, google Jura, very interesting wine. Thanks for the great service and enjoyable conversation.

Michel has a PhD in wine aromas and has a very interesting background (studied in NYC! Among other places). He knows wines and calvados and everything in between. He guided us through several calvados tastings and also provided guidance to calvados tasting in the region. He offered additional help on any related Normandy matter and was truly a wonderful host to us in Bayeux. Highly recommended as a great local place to stop and explore.

We spent 4 days in Bayeux and stopped by this shop twice. The owner was absolutely lovely, offering us a tasting of calvados and giving us great recommendations of ciders and wines as well. Honestly, he was just fascinating to talk to and he spoke great English. He has a very strong background in wines from all over the world. Both visits were very fun and we walked away with tons of gifts and bottles to drink while we continue our visit in France.

Stop here before you do the Cider Route so you can learn what to look for at the other tastings.
