Wine, just like music, converses with the soul. Let's be guided...
I am taking you to some places which are exceptional, distinctive or highly prized, to be immersed among the vines and in the magic of wine.
You will discover and understand the wine makers and their wines across various terroirs and Climats, in various regions.
This invitation to a voyage goes along with utter respect for the places, the men and the work they perform and with humility towards knowledge and expertise.
While on this tour, you will discover the old print of geology on the present terroirs, you will understand how the history of vine and wine mingles with ancient texts ; and how man, through his viticulture and his wine making method, blends with nature in order to make it sublime.
Let's consider the traditional approach to vine and wine in a fresh manner in order to experience a unique, personal and special emotion, unreeling "the enchanted thread" ; from the geological formation of the terroirs, the origin of vine and wine, the current cultivation and wine producing methods to the tasting of vintage wines or prestigious wines.
My actual encounter with vine and wine occured in 1998, between Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin. It would be an epiphany.
From then on, I have felt the need to do some research and to build in that field..
To start with, out of curiosity. Then out of passion.
First, I regularly spent time on oenology stay in various regions, visiting vineyards, going wine tasting. Then I undertook a complete and reputed curriculum lasting several long years.
In 2016, I totally involved myself in this wine tourism project.
I set it up just as I had imagined it : dense and different.
In April 2019, I founded my company Le Chant de la Vigne.
This name Le Chant de la Vigne is a tribute to Virgil and his magnificent and timeless poetry.
