Laurence is passionate about Montmartre and knows intimately the story behind its vineyard "Le Clos Montmartre"
Laurence was born in Dijon, the capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, where the fairies of patrimony and gastronomy gave her their blessings, which she has carried throughout a nomadic life that has taken her from France to Morocco to Spain to Ireland and back to France again. Having earned diplomas in hospitality and oenology, she has shared her passion for history and winemaking throughout Europe. All of these experiences (and a sprinkling of fairy dust) come together on top of the hill of Montmartre where Laurence is honored to share the fascinating story about how the rebellious Parisian spirit protected a piece of land which remains Europe’s oldest and most well-kept secret urban vineyard — “Le Clos Montmartre.”
