With our team of wine experts, we taste tens of thousands of different wines every year from all over the world with the aim of presenting them to the public”.
Michel Bettane adds:
“We are continuing to organize high level master classes devoted either to great winemakers or built around a theme encompassing exceptional wines. We also think that great wines deserve to be presented in an exceptional place: the Saatchi Gallery is a magical place, just like the Louvre where we have been organizing our French wine event for the past 8 years.”
