Stephanie is Laurent’s cousin, and like everyone in her family, her roots in the wine industry run deep. Born and raised on her family’s vineyard in Bordeaux, Stephanie grew up experiencing the visceral sights, sounds and smells of winemaking. After studying International Marketing in Germany as well as Business and Supply Chain Management in France, she founded a startup selling French boutique wines. Stephanie spent many years traveling to different vineyards building her profound wine knowledge, refining her palate, and forming long term connections with the winemakers. She believes that winemaking is a noble profession, and wishes to spread the joy and magic of French wine to the US market. At Sommailier, Stephanie will be interviewing important guest winemakers, for a deeper understanding of the wines we showcase.
