Event description

Description


During these wine class series, I will take you on an unforgettable trip to the French country side, without leaving LA (not yet) and for about 2 hours. French accent at no additional charge and cigarettes not required. We will taste wines from the famous regional epicenters but also undiscovered corners of this amazing country. Let's talk terroir and think outside the glass! As we taste through a line-up of about 8 wines, we will analyze together in what ways soil types and climates are impacting on the robe, nose, palate & texture/mouth feel. Traditional (noble) grapes will be discussed (and tasted) but also other more eclectic & unknown but fun & delicious varietals. I will help you identify specific terroirs based on the aromas you are scenting.



In the second part, i will share with you all my tips and tricks on how to make your next trip to the region of focus as easy and educational as possible. You will be helped on how to pick the best itineraries based on your knowledge on French wines and what you wish to visit. I will recommend you some places where to stay and eat, explain how to plan your wine tour & tastings at boutique domaines, how to avoid tourist traps and how to best interact with the winemakers. You will leave this experience with great handouts and lists of recommendations. Oui, i will tell you everything.


Whether you are a neophyte or a wine connoisseur, join us for a great interactive seminar. Train and indulge your senses! Come with your questions & get the shortcuts to navigate through Provence with confidence, from your glass to the vineyards. Discover and develop your personal wine style.. and unveil your inner Epicurian! Artisan cheeses will be served. Bien sûr!


You're hearing the crickets, smelling lavender, eating Ratatouille with a glass of Rose... you might be in Provence! This time, stay in L.A and save on all travel expenses. We will take you on a tour of some the most dreamy vineyards and appellations in Provence, ideally located next to the Mediterranean. Enjoy whites, roses and reds from one of the most heavenly places in the world!

The wines we select are made sustainably at the very minimum. We focus on "green" wines and as much as possible we try to include organic and biodynamic wines. If they are good for mother nature, they are good for you.
