Your guide

Wine is a passion that has held me since 2007 during my first immersion at the Cave de Morgex in the Aosta Valley in Italy alongside the oenologist Gianluca Telloli. After 10 years working as export manager in Burgundy, I created the Cépages Communication agency in 2019 to be in contact with the vignerons.

Sharing, transmitting, making accessible the work of the winemaker and the beauty of the terroir have become my main motivations.

The project to accompany wine enthusiasts in their discovery of the vineyard in France was born over such inspiring encounters and it naturally came into being.

Originally from Beaune and settled in Bordeaux since 2020, I like to navigate between these two very different regions and in the end, driven by the same desire: to delight palates around the world in the 75cl format!

Qualifications: Master’s degree in international wine trade, WSET 3
