Wine Tasting Masterclass

Welcome to our French Wine Tasting Masterclass, brought to you by Voila Wine & Co. We invite you to explore the rich tapestry of French viticulture through an exclusive tasting event designed for enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.

During this masterclass, you will have the privilege of tasting a minimum of six meticulously selected French wines, each representing a unique region and style. Our selection is tailored to provide a broad understanding of France’s diverse wine landscape. You will experience the elegance of two reds from the Loire Valley, the distinctive flavours of a white and a red from Bordeaux, and the refreshing notes of a rosé from Provence. This curated selection offers a comprehensive overview of some of France’s most renowned wine regions.

To enhance your tasting experience, we will also provide a selection of nibbles that complement the wines. These carefully chosen pairings are intended to elevate the flavours and allow for a deeper appreciation of the subtle nuances in each glass. 

Whether you are a seasoned wine lover or new to the world of wine, this masterclass promises a delightful and insightful journey into the heart of French wine culture. Join us to discover, taste, and celebrate France’s finest offerings.

Julian Berthier

Originally from the charming city of Nancy in the Lorraine region, adjacent to France’s famous Champagne region, Julian began exploring the world at 21. He embarked on a hospitality career in Thailand and arrived in Sydney 12 years ago, where he worked at Still Bar and Grill for a year before moving to Brisbane to help open Pony Dining. He fell in love with Brisbane’s quality of life, welcoming people, and the abundant opportunities it offered. Five years ago, Julian joined Noble Spirits and Voila Wines, merging a lifelong passion for food, cooking, and wine with professional life. His interest in cooking began in childhood, though initially, he was deterred from pursuing it professionally due to the demanding nature of the culinary industry. However, in Australia, Julian realised the industry’s potential, recognising how his background and passion could be highly valued. For the past 12 years, Julian has been immersed in Brisbane’s vibrant food and wine scene, collaborating with top-tier chefs and sommeliers, continuously driven by a dedication to the culinary arts and the dynamic Brisbane community. The wines will be exclusively supplied by Voila! Wine Company, a collaboration between Borderac Crus et Vins, a renowned Bordeaux négociant since 1997, and a passionate wine enthusiast from Provence.
