Who we are

Hola & bienvenue!

We are Bárbara and François, a winelover couple with a (wine) love story that has taken us to the most renowned wine regions in the world in a wine-quest adventure.

I am Barbara, an Argentinian sommelier that has been lucky enough to live in some of the world’s most-renowned wine regions and I have learnt lots about this wonderful drink by traveling and tasting hundreds of wines everywhere I have been. I host the tastings and workshops.

François is Cheers Tastings’ editorial contributor, consulting taster and social media & press guru. He is in charge of our PR and comms strategy and occasionally writes wine features for other publications.

We met in New Zealand -where we tasted some of the most wonderful Sauvignon Blancs of our lives; but we currently live in France, more specifically in Bordeaux, the quintessential wine city in the world. Together we have travelled the wine regions of France, Argentina, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, and our bucket list keeps growing by the day!

We have a passion for wine and food and spend most of our time… well… tasting them, of course! Being in Europe and having access to thousands of wines from around the world, we decided this was a great opportunity to share our passion with others and enjoy interesting tasting evenings together.
