Frédéric Duverger

A certified French sommelier, Frédéric worked over 12 years in fine-dining restaurants in New York, Gijon (Spain), Montréal, Ajaccio (Corsica), Paris, Cannes & Monaco as an executive restaurant manager.

A Bordeaux native, wine has always been a passion for Frédéric, who decided to take that passion one-step further in pursuing his studies at the prestigious WSET in London (Wine & Spirit Education Trust), thus earning a diploma in world wines & spirits.

He created his company CannesYouTaste in 2013, offering wine classes for amateurs and wine aficionados alike, to teach the art of wine tasting and appreciation.
