What you'll do

The tasting will take place at the restaurant, after a meet and greet we can discuss each persons knowledge and prior experiences with wine. This is not a classroom tasting, this is a tasting for people who are passionate about wine, who want to discover or rediscover french domaines that continue to push the boundaries of quality, uniqueness, expression of terroir and pure pleasure!
With a hugely varied selection of wines a tasting can be adapted to the desires of each group, we can go for an initiation tasting with a wide palet of tastes and régions or a more focused tasting for initiated wine lovers. Perhaps oxidated and sweet wines from all over France or focused on a particular favourite région, or a particular favourite grape variety and how it changes from the Loire to the Côte de Provence!
The tasting is idealy aimed towards groups of 5 or 6 people with at least 5 wines selected. Nibbles to accompany the tasting will be provided by our wonderful Cheffe Julie McLean. All wines are of course available to take home from our cellar and outside of the tasting it will be my pleasure to inform you on any bottles that may catch your eye.
Wine has become a big part of our lives, the majority of our holidays are spent picking out bottles or picking grapes with our favourite vignerons!
We can't wait to share our passion and further support the wine producers we love!

I am an Irish foodie who has been living in France since 2008. I moved to France to learn about French food culture and wine. Upon arrival I immediately started working in Michelin starred restaurants in Paris as well as great French bistrots, natural wine cellars and a butchers shop.
My love for wine has steadily grown during my time in France, reinforced by opening my own little French bistrot with my parisian wife, 'La Racine et la Moelle' in Figeac.
We very regularly travel all over France to visit wine producers, taste each years production and select the very best for our restaurant. We are very focused on production methods, the majority of our wines are organic with very low levels of added sulphur. We know all of our wine producers personally and I would love to share this passion and knowledge that people have shared with me.

Where you'll be

Our wee bistrot is the result of several years of hard work. We spend lot of time here so we have made it as comfortable and pretty as we can. We have a beautiful, covered terrace with a spectacular vine that grows all over the top of the restaurant. We have built a wine cellar up to the job of storing rare and special wines. Temperature and humidity just right, everything is ready to be tasted. We have spacious toilets for wheelchair users.
