Frustrated you can’t travel to France at the moment? Let us bring France to you!

We are very happy to be hosting a French wine tasting in our school in St Ives, on Tuesday 4 May at 6pm.

Stephane and Pierre will be introducing us to four sparking wines from different regions of France, including one champagne. More than a tasting experience, you will learn about how these wines are made, what makes them different, and how to best enjoy them.

  • Location: French à la Carte, 164A Mona Vale Rd, St Ives
  • Event in French only: open to Intermediate levels and above

The wine specialists

Stephane Pommier
As a young boy growing up in the village of Chablis in France, Stephane found himself spending many hours sitting at the table next to his father and his friends who were winemakers, absorbing their passion.

In 2004 Stephane moved to Australia and started working for McWilliam’s Winery, then became a Sommelier at Rock Restaurant in the Hunter Valley. Today Stephane is the Head Sommelier at two chef hat restaurant Muse in the Hunter Valley. From the dirty boots of the terroir picking grapes to the clean pressed suit pouring your glass, Stephane has worked for over 25 years in the wine industry and he still madly loves what he does!

More about Stephane:

Pierre Toumanoff
His passion for the wine came by travelling. First in France, in all the wine regions and then around the world. He went to Spain, Italy, South Africa and finally found his wine home in the Hunter Valley.  Pierre has just completed the international wine certification WSET Level 3.
