"Sommelier" with a Certificate from the WSET (Wine Spirit and Education Trust) School (level 3 with disctinctions)
I was born in Avignon , famous for its Popes Palace, and have spent most of my life in the Avignon and Chateauneuf-du-Pape area.
When I was a student I used to help with the wine harvest in the famous vinyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape where I fell in love with the beauty of this remarkable world famous wine growing area, and also the wine.
I spent 2 years studying in Ireland, perfecting my English, and then returned to France where I worked in finance in Paris for 4 years.
I eventually realized my true passion lay in the wine industry sector.
After graduating from the 'Wine and spirit Education Trust ' (WSET) in Paris I returned to Avignon where I started working as a manager at a famous winery responsible for oenotourism.
These experiences finaly led to the founding of my own company : Provence and Wine.
Provence and Wine tours are custom designed to provide a unique and personnalized experience of wine in Provence. My passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for wine making, plus my intimate knowlegde of this beautiful area, allows me the opportunity to offer discerning clients a unique in depth wine experience.
