About Bonde Fine Wine Shop

Conceived in July 2021 by Boston restaurateur and renowned sommelier Bertil Jean-Chronberg, Bonde Fine Wine is a concept in Cambridge’s Harvard Square dedicated not only to eco-responsible wines, neo-artisan wine accessories and wine books, but also creating a bespoke experience for each guest while providing wine education to the community in a light-hearted and intimate environment. The focus on sustainable, small-production American wineries gives the consumer an opportunity to understand the wealth of quality, economically accessible wines grown and made in the United States. Each month Jean-Chronberg also publishes a new edition of Zero-Two-Wine-Three-Eight, an informative online newsletter tackling various wine-related topics peppered with humor and wit, along with Casserole & Sommelier, sharing monthly recipes and wine pairings. Within the first year of opening, Bonde has received recognition in publications from the Boston Globe, Boston Common Magazine, Cambridge Day, and was awarded “Best Wine Shop” by Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston 2022.

About Michette bakery

Michette is an artisanal French bakery and café opening in early 2023 at 164 Broadway, in Somerville, MA. The boulangerie takes cues from French bakery culture and will offer sourdough bread, along with pastries, sandwiches and fresh coffee. Michette wants to reinvent French boulangerie for our Somerville community by marrying quality and heritage with inventive new flavors, fresh and local ingredients, and modern techniques. The name is a play on Miche, French for a traditional loaf of bread. Born and raised in France, our founder, Thomas Ferté is passionate about all things bread - especially sourdough. He started his career down a path very different from boulangerie, as he practiced corporate law in New York for four years until 2019, when he decided to swap his business suits for baking sheets and pursue bread-making. For now, you can follow Michette's journey on Instagram at @michettebakery and our website
