Having a huge passion for Wines and Spirits, I have been working in this industry for more than 12 years now, both in Europe and in the U.S.

In 2000, I  worked for ChateauOnline.com in Paris.  I was there a wine consultant for premium clients, in Europe and overseas, helping them to build up a wine collection.  In 2001, I worked in marketing for Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH).  As a product manager for 
Hennessy Cognac, I contributed to the launch of Fine de Cognac on the European market.  End of 2001, and for two years, I was hired out by the Champagnes Piper and Charles Heidsieck (Remy-Cointreau Group) in Reims, France.  I was working as a Brand Manager for Charles Heidsieck and launched new products both for the European & U.S. markets.

Since October 2004, I have been hosting educational wine events in Los Angeles area.  I have been also representing a boutique wine distributor targeting high-end hotels & restaurants, wine bars, wine & gourmet stores in all South California.

The World of Wine is a great way to meet GREAT people and YOU are now part of it... CHEERS!!
