Meet Charles

Wine is a unique experience that connects pleasure, nature, culture and history. I'm thrilled to help VIVANT members explore this fascinating subject.
What’s your favorite food and wine pairing and why?

I can never resist a nice platter of oysters or a meaty lobster paired with a bottle of Riesling Grand Cru Hengst from domaine Josemeyer. The combination of this mineral, crisp and lively wine with iodine-rich seafood is close to perfection.

Tell us about your favorite wine trip.

Every trip to Burgundy’s Côte d’Or is magical. The region's diversity of terroirs, its winemaking know-how, and its history going all the way back to the Romans and Celts fascinate me.


"Food without wine is a corpse; wine without food is a ghost; united and well-matched they are as body and soul, living partners."
