Expertise

I have a background in Business & Event Management and a passion for Burgundy wine. After working in hospitality management in Saint Tropez and subsequently as Tourism Director of the Molinard perfume house in Grasse (the “perfume capital of the world”) and as a consultant for the UESS (Université Européen des Senteur & Saveurs), I transitioned a large amount of my business skills to the wine industry. At Château de Berne in Provence, I was responsible for wine brand management and tourism development, traveling extensively to the southern hemisphere to discover its wine tourism sector.

After 20 years living in France with my French family, I set up my own leisure industry  development agency in Burgundy. I have acquired a considerable knowledge of the French leisure industry working in Wine, Fragrance and Event Management.

I currently run the Vosne Tasting Club in Burgundy.
