My name is Florie, I come from the South of France and since 2016 I have organized more events that I can count in Zürich, guided hundreds of people into wine tours or kite surf and yoga retreats. I am always ready for a new challenge!
As long as I can remember, I have always been skilled with a strong sense of organization. I am passionate and dedicated about everything I do.
My enthusiasm for wine came from my dad’s side of the family. They produce grape since 3 generations in South of France and believe me or not but the love for food or as we call “les arts de la table” in French came from my mom’s side. They are caterers… also since 3 generations…
It looks today that I had my path already made up for me but… it took me some years to go back to my roots. I first studied economy at university and worked few years in the corporate world to soon realize my calling was elsewhere.
All these activities that became today Florie’s Stories* grew organically, first from a wine club between friends** to a small catering company operation, to event organizer. At some point I decided to take on a wine education to make things official.
I am now WSET 3 and Master Level Wine of South of France certified as well as an official certification provider for Sud de France and I love sharing my passion with others thanks to our wine academy and wine tour programs.I also enjoy providing healthy Mediterranean food paired with wines I personally select for the events I cater.And when I said I, I mean we, because it takes a village to bring a passion to a sustainable lifestyle. So, to all our customers, helpers, fan and followers from the early stage a big thank you for believing in us.
And to all the new people we will meet on the process also thank you for trusting us! Ha and for the yoga part you will say… I started practicing yoga when I arrive in Switzerland, and as everything I do, I fell head first in it. Today I am a 200H Atha Yoga, 60H Yin Yoga, Aerial Yoga and SUP Yoga certified teacher and my passion is to give back this knowledge to you during my classes or my retreats in selected areas of the world!
