What you'll do

See you at 10am in the cellar "Chez Victor et Hugo".

Occitanie is a region full of secrets and traditions, Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the largest wine regions in Europe. I will be your guide for this taste experience.

The tour ends with a tasting "wine pairing" on the theme defined in advance with you on Airbnb, all animated by me.

Hello, I am Jean-Baptiste. I work in the Victor Hugo market as a wine merchant manager. My passion for wine started in 2003 in Beaune in Burgundy.
Graduated in wine, with a specialization "vine and wine", I wanted to open my knowledge to the world and went to work abroad for 2 years.

Thus, Australia, Peru and Chile were my favorite lands to learn to vinify, to discover their cultures and specificities viticoles.

Back in France for 4 years, I'm constantly living and sharing my passion, in the field of wine. A passion that goes beyond my knowledge. Fully epicurean, I like to share the taste of good and beautiful things and I will be delighted to make you discover them. See you for an oenological and gastronomic experience 100% fun!

Where you'll be

The Vitor Hugo market is an emblematic place of the Occitan gastronomic culture, not to visit it would miss a historic place of Toulouse.

Jean Baptiste was so friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone in the market knew him and he showed us all his favorite spots. The best part, hands down, was at the end when he prepared a little plate for us with a wine tasting. He was so engaged and taught us a lot about regional and organic wines. The other customers at the shop were engaging and we got to have a few little conversations as we snacked and sipped. The market is great and it was very worthwhile, he really made us feel welcome.

Belle immersion dans un marché local très réputé à Toulouse, découverte et dégustation de produits locaux et interaction avec les commerçants qui connaissent parfaitement Batiste. La visite se termine sur une dégustation de vins juste à l'heure de l'apéritif ...et on aurait plus envie de partir!

It was a very interesting visit to the market; JP was very knowledgeable about wine and he guided us on what kind of wine to purchase.

Super experience! I really enjoyed the insider view of the market. As I live very close to a highly touristed market in my hometown, am bilingual in French, and am pretty knowledgeable about French foods, it took an extra something for me to want to take a market tour. This one delivered with it's insider view and wine tasting.
