Erwan Gouiffes – Sommelier (Wine Not)

“I would like to say that I was able to share and express my passion during the wine tastings.
But even when the event finished, and I start a conversation with a few residents, I just want to take a seat, stay all day and discuss, to exchange, to share experiences, it was so rewarding.
Many thanks to all residents.”
