creator of the "wine moment" concept

Wine is made for drinking, tasting and sharing. Wine means life and pleasure : to Verny Paris that is essential.

 

Therefore, Verny Paris has created "wine moments", that is special events which take place either in our private lounge or in various places. Members of Verny Paris are regularly invited to unique "moments" where they can discover a particular wine and hear about its story. In addition, the Verny Paris lounge is open on demand to each member who would wish to enjoy a tasting moment in an intimate atmosphere.

To Verny Paris wine represents the pleasure of an instant, but it is also a promise for the future.

 

Verny Paris also takes care of extra storing of wines and repurchasing wine collections, always keeping in mind its values of trust and dedication.

What is your story?

My passion for wine began in the Paris-Dauphine oenology club that I still lead with Olivier and Edouard. Winning many contests together did strengthen our friendship. Until then I had been working as a private banker, but joining Verny Paris was a foregone conclusion.

 

An anecdote?

A tradition: when visiting vineyards, we always pick up a handful of earth and stones and breath in the tang of the soil. One day, at Clos Saint Hune, in Alsace, the manager of the Trimbach Estate surprised us in the midst of our rite…. and broke out laughing!

You and Verny Paris?
A beautiful challenge  to share with people who matter to me.
It also means the possibility of working some day within a domain that is my passion and bring happiness to people.

 

What is the challenge of Verny Paris?
Our ambition is to become a major player, and be influential on the wine market. We want to discover wines, we want to be pioneers.

 

An anecdote?
Our first visit to a Burgundy wine maker, who kept silent for a long while. He offered us wines which were complex and shy, a little like himself. But as we showed patience and interest, they eventually revealed their hidden qualities to us.

Master of Wine Art

Verny Paris is deeply rooted in French history and culture. Verny, Patron saint of winemakers, was firstly worshipped in France as early as from the 16th century in the Jura, Burgundy and Auvergne regions. During the 19th century Verny's name progressively fell into disuse to Saint Vincent advantage. 

On the occasion of a walk in vineyards in the South of France, after sharing a "moment of wine", the three founder members came upon a portrait of Verny on a stainglass window of a church in the town of Figeac.

 

That is how it all started.

Since then Verny Paris is thriving along with its partners.
