« The Right Wine with the Right Food »

« A Fabulous Wedding to Celebrate with You »

Food & Wine on board La Vie en Rose is a great opportunity for us to share with you our « French Culture » deeply rooted in this « Pleasure of the Table ». You will discover an authentic French Cuisine cooked exclusively with fresh and seasonal ingredients. The wine selection has been carefully done within a large variety of Bourgogne to serve perfectly the dish.

I discovered Burgundy 30 years ago when I met my wife originating from Mercurey, famous vineyard of the « Côte Chalonnaise », and my passion for the wine started from that time. Since years this wine interest never stopped and it would be a pure pleasure to share this passion with you.
