From his family, Fred should have worked in the wine's world since the beginning as both sides are indeed vines owners in the Geneva region. And despite studying Economy and History, fate probably, Fred is now a wine entrepreneur and sommelier. You bet he is a real winemaker before the next 10 years ?!
Fred is at the origin of the Wiine.me project and is now co-founder and COO of the company. He is managing the logistic, finance and, lucky him, the wine selection process!
How do you enjoy drinking wine the most? Or what is a good bottle of wine for you?
For me, the wine is first of all a social pleasure. I can not imagine drinking wine without being well surrounded by family, friends or others wine lovers. The main thing is sharing the emotion brought by the wine with the people around!
Favorite combo (place + food + wine + with)?
The first great emotion I ever had with wine, was during a company Christmas diner with the first wine company I worked in. The theme of the evening for the wines and champagne was the vintage 1982 (not a bad vintage!). So every glass we tasted was from that specific year and I will allways remember the Château Lynch Bages, in Magnum, we drunk that night. The expression was so perfectly chased, precise and silky. It was a perfect wine and a great emotion!
