Born in Avignon, and having come of age alongside Rhône’s wine’s growing popularity over the last several decades, Christophe has literally mastered his craft. In 2004 he earned the distinction of Meilleur Ouvrier de France – Sommelier (MOF), France’s highest honor for sommeliers.
This is a 43-minute conversation covering historical and cultural aspects of the Northern and Southern Rhône regions, and the styles. Christophe says, “It’s better to understand the wine when you see where it comes from” as he teases the upcoming Rhône Study Tour (June 17-22, 2018).
