About Alexis Caraux

I grew up in a family environment with a few members owning some restaurants. As a child, I remember family meals, especially the Sunday meal with my grandparents. I remember the attention paid to the choice of the wine, and my father uncorking nice bottles. Later, in 2010, it was while attending a wine tasting class in Paris that I fell in love with it: I watched with envy the sommelier lead the tasting. This was definitely the job I wanted: taste and pass it on! A few months later, I started my wine education. I quit my job to create a tourist activity: teaching French wine to visitors coming to Paris. In 2016, life took me to the beautiful Touraine region, on the banks of the Loire river. There, I put down roots and I started running an AOC - Appellation d'origine contrôlée - working with more than 100 wine estates. But the desire to renew contacts with my international customers grew stronger. In 2020 I started selecting and selling wine to my contacts. This is how my wine cellar management service started!

France and more

I suggest that you entrust me with the supply of your cellar with wines from all French regions: Loire, Burgundy, Rhône Valley, Bordeaux to name the most famous ones. These wines could be in my personal cellar - most are already there. I remain at your disposal should you be looking to compose your cellar with wines from a specific region or another country.
