In late September 2016 our group of 16 arranged in advance a lunch at La Cave. It was superb in every way, from the multiple food courses to the service to the excellent and well-priced wines. At some point I will return even though I am over 3,900 miles/6,250 km away.

Excellent place to taste wines from different local wine producers, from the very smallest to the world famous ones. The lady knows both the wines and the producers, and is well connected. Try the home-made foie gras!

We dined here on a Monday evening, when all the more formal Tripadvisor picks were already booked out or closed for the night. However, given this was #2 in town, we were looking forward to a wonderful evening of wine and food. The owner was very friendly, chatty, and we talked at length about several wineries we had visited on... More

The food was simple - cheeses and hams - but of the finest quality and delicious and the wines so good that the whole party bought various bottles to take away. The hosts were charming and took very... More

I took 16 clients for a wine tour to the northern rhone and had lunch at the Cave de Taurobole. This is an amazing place. The food is great (simple but outstanding produces), the wine list is outstanding and the service is mastered by Nathalie, the owner. Strongly recommended!

While being 4 days in the Northern Rhone area on a wine trip, we did research this place and ended up coming back another night. The host couple is extremely service minded and friendly, and the wine selection is one of the best in Tain. And still at reansable prices. The host went out of his own way to find... More

Choice , range and older gems of the Rhone stand out in this relaxed and warm wine bar in the Tain l''Hermitage main square. Its a place worth spending a long night at and another reason why thsi town derserves more than a fleeting viist if oyu likw good wine, food and a relaxed unpretentious approach.
