Les Grands Chais Monégasques

Fine wines, top-quality champagnes and rare spirits can all be found at the oldest cellar in the principality of Monaco. Set up in the early 1900s, the shop’s classic décor is reminiscent of the boutique’s beginnings; wooden beams, old wine barrels and vintage posters line the walls. Their choice wines are even featured on the menus of some of Monaco’s most prestigious hotels and restaurants. The cellar has a secondary function as a delicatessen, selling Modena balsamic vinegars, foie gras and artisan jams and confits. Events such as wine and whiskey tastings are held throughout the year at Les Grands Chais Monégasques, plus they also offer wine delivery straight to your superyacht cellar.

Orlov

A private appointment is required to browse or purchase any of the fine gems from the Orlov jewellery house.
