After a massive day sight-seeing with my family (they are visiting from Australia), I wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of Downtown Geneva and head somewhere quiet and relaxing but quintessentially European, cue Carouge.
Having spent many weeks wandering the streets of Carouge creating my mental travel guide for when the family arrive, we make a bee line for Vert Bouteille. A beautiful bistro and wine bar serving only organic wine and delicious food.
This place has it all, aesthetically it beautiful, red and white tables litter the sidewalk, the extensive wine list is handwritten on chalkboards and inside a feature wall made entirely of green bottles. The staff are amazingly knowledgeable and very helpful and the Vert Bouteille is in Carouge, a world away from the busy streets of downtown Geneva.
Having been here a number of times before the family’s arrival (for research purposes of course, it has nothing to do with the fabulous wine and delicious food), I love nothing more then finishing a busy day in the peaceful and welcoming surrounds of the Vert Bouteille.
