Description

25 years in the wine trade (sourcing-selling-educating)-23 years practising & instructing Yoga (locally-internationally). 2+ years into learning Sign Languages... with a wine project in mind ;-) . A French native, raised in Bordeaux, I started my wine career working for the then trading section of Château Lynch Bages. This sowed the seeds of a genuine passion for all that is related to wine. I visited most major wine regions both in the Old and New World either for work or for personal interest. Regular wine trips ensure I maintain strong relationships with producers, get to meet new ones, and keep up to speed with an ever evolving industry. I took part for many years in the Master of Wines program, and with a keen interest in sharing my passion I became in 2011 a WSET Wine Educator Level 3 and since 2018 an enthusiastic Bordeaux Wine Educator. I worked for 15+ years as wine buyer in the UK for Berry Bros & Rudd. Focused on sourcing/buying wines across the vinous world, I also enjoyed organising and hosting wine trips/events for the on and off-trade. I returned to Bordeaux in 2012 to set up my own business. I, then decided to combine my two passions; Wine & Yoga. Creator of 'Pause, Breathe, Taste'; this innovative tasting method is based on two ancestral traditions to get the most from your senses. Optimise your learning, and tasting experiences using Yogic principles. No postures involved thus no leopard legging outfit required :-)
