My name is Julie De Cock and I am the Maitre d'hotel of ViV Wine Bistro. I moved to Key West in 2015 to pursue my dream of bringing authentic French cuisine to the island. I am passionate about the French way of life, enjoying every moment, with a good glass of wine, delicious cheeses, and a lot of country bread with authentic service. I invite you to come to sit at our table and enjoy a lovely French-inspired evening in paradise. Stay as long as you’d like to! A bientot, Julie

About ViV, and "Vivez Joyeux"
In 2015 adventure called and Julie answered. She left France and came directly to the southernmost Island in the USA. Her passion to eat well and drink well fit perfectly into the slightly delirious and always charming melting pot that is Key West. Soon after arriving, Julie took the rich experiences that she had in Europe and France discovering artisanal cheeses and sincere wines (without conventional chemistry) and put them to work by purchasing La Crêperie. Her expertise in not only selecting good French wines but being able to pair them with mostly traditional French recipes lead her to open her passion project a year later, aptly named Vivez Joyeux (Live Merry). She changed the name to Viv Wine & Cheese Bar and then settled on the perfect name, Viv Wine Bistro because wine + food + bar = Bistro.
Viv has curated a vast collection of the finest organic and natural wines, craft beers, French plates, cheeses, meats, and more. Eating well + drinking well is still Julie’s passion - we invite you to discover an eclectic selection of exquisite bottles from around the world, produced by winemakers who are respectful of humanity, nature, and biodiversity, only at ViV!
