  • A Wine Bistro with dramatic wines to drink!

    By the bottle or by the glass, natural wines are sincere!

    Natural wine respect man and nature

    Producing natural wines is a commitment

    We believe in a greener world, with good food and good wine. For us, A good wine is clean first, but what does it mean?


    Some of these criteria are generally accepted by most natural wine growers and producers :


    - Organically and/or biodynamically grown grapes - Dry-farmed, ("de rulo" in Chile), low-yielding vineyards - Hand-picked

    - No added sugars (chaptalization) or foreign yeasts or foreign bacteria - No adjustments for acidity - Not any additives for color, mouth-feel, minerality... - No external flavor additives, including those derived from new oak barrels, staves, chips, or liquid extract - Low to no fining or filtration - No heavy manipulation, such as micro-oxygenation, reverse osmosis, spinning cone, cryoextraction - Low to no added sulphites as known as sulfites - no BS, no fast-food marketing, no green-washing!

    Does Organic taste better?

    (external resource in pdf to read to understand the cons but also the numerous pros about what is a dramatic and sincere taste, what can be a quality, what can be a default, in natural wines made from organic grapes)

  • About ViV, and "Vivez Joyeux"

    Since 2015, straight from France to Key West, she decided to embark on the adventure, the passion to eat well and drink well did the rest. After a rich experience in discovering authentic regional products in France and Europe, artisanal cheeses, and sincere wines without conventional chemistry, she decided to bring her 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 humanity, nature, and biodiversity.

    Enjoy and share together!

    Stay Safe, Drink Natural.

    The ViV Team
