Organized by

Birgit

From my childhood years I have an interest for wines and good food, thanks to my father. I have gained international experience in the hospitality business in the Netherlands, Switzerland, France and the USA before, during and after my education at the Hotelschool The Hague. While working for a wine importing company in Rotterdam I had the chance to become a Vinologue, graduate of the Dutch WineAcademy. Since 1998 I have been living in the most unspoilt part of France: the Lot. Here I fell in love with the Cahors-wines, birthplace of the Malbec and the many regional and authentic specialities. I would be very happy to show you why.
