Tasting of six prestigious wines
Eric Boschman is today an international reference in enology and a culinary expert. Named best sommelier in Belgium in 1988, he shares his knowledge and love of wine with a contagious enthusiasm.

The essence of Provence
Founded in the thirteenth century by the Knights Templar in the foothills of the Massif des Maures, the Commanderie de Peyrassol covers nearly 850 hectares of which 90 are dedicated to growing grapes. Thanks to its exceptional natural situation, the area was once a stage of rest on the road to the Holy Land for passing pilgrims.
Since the first grapes planted there nearly 800 years ago by the Knights Templar, generations of winegrowers have cultivated carefully selected varieties to be in perfect harmony with the climate. Three wines AOC Côtes de Provence: Clos Peyrassol, Château Peyrassol and Commanderie de Peyrassol are among the best wines of the appellation and represent the essence of Provence.
The show will be followed by a tasting of the estate’s wines, accompanied by a cocktail reception.
Price: 39 euros – show + tasting and snacks included
