As the saying goes: “In May, do as you please“. So, for a most pleasant and memorable month of May, this year, we did things big!

To concretize the prestige and animate this month of May, what would you think about making a detour by the Cannes Film Festival?

FROM OENOLOGY TO THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL?

Pretty great, isn’t it?! But what does this have to do with wine and wine tourism? At first glance, it is true that we are a little far from the oenological and wine tourism activities offered by L.O Wine. Well, don’t get me wrong! This trip was one of the most oenological.

“It was in Cannes, and more precisely at the Cannes Film Festival, that Laetitia introduced the greatest names in cinema to the beautiful grape varieties of Bordeaux.”

From May 15th to 23rd, our dear Lætitia was on a mission for the wines of our beautiful Bordeaux region. Tourism and wine, these are the two key words that sum up this stay in Cannes. And meetings too…

Led by the CIVB (Bordeaux’s Wines Interprofessionnal Council), our wine expert has attacked one of France’s most famous cities and the annual event for which she is renowned. It was in Cannes, and more precisely at the Cannes Film Festival, that Laetitia introduced the greatest names in cinema to the beautiful grape varieties of Bordeaux and, more broadly, introduced them to the wines of Bordeaux.

BUT WHO DID WE MEET?

What better way to restore the reputation of Bordeaux Wines than to give a course and introduce the wines of our Bordeaux region to French and foreign celebrities?

An oenological workshop at François Cluzet here, an oenological workshop at Leila Bekhti there. And to make it all the more interesting, a little dance with Léa Seydoux.

From the top of the rooftop of the very beautiful 3.14 hotel, in the heart of the splendid city of Cannes, or from a restaurant on the beach, with the feet in the sand, our wine expert delighted the taste buds of wine connoisseurs and charmed those who were taking their first steps in wine tasting.

AND THE STEPS IN ALL THIS?

But, of course, between two oenological workshops, Laetitia went to tame the steps of the famous red carpet of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, a mandatorily detour from this beautiful event.

And with all the wonderful encounters she made on this occasion, both in the world of wine and in the world of personalities, and with all the excellent feedbacks we received, we hope to see many oenological and wine tourism benefits emerge in the coming weeks for our wine company.
