    About ViV, and "Vivez Joyeux"

    From France to Key West, there is only one step. Julie and I decided to embark on the adventure, the expatriation and the passion to eat well and drink well did the rest. After a rich experience in discovering good regional products in France and Europe, artisanal cheeses and sincere wines, without conventional chemistry, we decided to bring our expertise in selecting good wines and good French recipes, more or less traditional to Key West. This slightly delirious paradise is the natural melting pot of Florida, and finally, of all old Europe, Latin America... In 2016, we decided to open our new gem : "Vivez Joyeux", then we renamed it, ViV Wine & Cheese bar and now ViV Wine Bistro, because wine+food+bar=bistro Though, of course, our fine selection of wines is influenced by all the producers of natural wines available in the United States, a chance to discover in Key West an eclectic selection of exquisite bottles from the world, produced by winemakers respectful of nature and biodiversity. Enjoy and share together!
