We would love to hear from you
Come on a tongue-tickling ‘Tour de Rosés’!
French wine specialist Sebastien Laboucarie and wine connoisseur Julien Craeye will open a series of different lovely French wines for you to sample. These wines all come from the Provence region in the South of France. You will also learn more about each of these wines as you discover their unique qualities – you may potentially also uncover a new love for Rosé!
Sebastien Laboucarie & Julien Craeye
Sebastien Laboucarie, owner of Voila Wine Company, comes from a French family who have been producing wines for three generations; naturally, Sebastien took up wine as a career. After completing his Master in Business, and travelling the world to sell French wines, Sebastien settled in Australia and created VOILA WINE CO, a company specialising in sharing with Aussies what French terroires have to offer.
Julien Craeye, a native from Troyes – the historical capital of Champagne – spent his young life immersed in the rich wine heritage of the region. Growing up a few cobblestoned streets away from the famous vineyards, Julien’s love of great wine and food grew in his early 20s as he travelled across Europe as a professional motocross athlete.
