Wine Tasting Lunches

Introduction déjeuners oenologiques

Alain Gousse, head sommelier of our Albert 1er gastronomic restaurant will be delighted to share with you his passion for wine. He proposes a monthly meeting of one or several wine makers, in which they share their know-how and allow you to discover their best wines through a tasting. The morning wine tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant with the elaboration of a special menu in accordance with the winemaker’s wines, who will take pleasure in joining you at the table.

Wine Tasting Lunches - May 2016 - Maison Bonnard, Savoy

The creation of the Maison Bonnard is the result of two brother's joining ideas, Roland and Frédéric, in 1988, when their parents decided to retire. Their land was 1.5 hectares. In the following years, Roland and Frédéric have rented a lot of others plots and their vineyard grew to 13 hectares. And naturally, the winery turned to an organic growth.
