Stephen Liney has both 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”), Stephen transitioned his business and olfactory skills to the wine industry. At Château de Berne in Provence, he 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 his French family, Stephen set up his own tourism development agency in Burgundy. He has a consummate knowledge of Burgundy, from its wine history to the secrets of the terroir, as well as long-standing friendships with the winemakers. A part-time lecturer at various Burgundy business schools, Stephen’s true passion is to initiate wine-lovers—from novices to wine makers—into the world of Burgundy wine.
