Wine runs through Nick’s family veins: his father was active in the transformation of Languedoc’s wine scene in the 80’s, helping up-and-coming winemakers to find new markets overseas. Thus, Languedoc is the region where he learned everything about wine and winemakers who dared to challenge tradition.
Nick then became an importer of premium boutique wines in Singapore. As his father, his focus was to shine a light on the new generation of wine producers in Languedoc.
Now that he has returned to his family home in Uzès and created A Wine Affair, Nick is teaching our cheese & wine pairing class as well as teaming up with Chef Eric for our Chef’s Table Food & Wine pairing class and the Week in Uzès.
