Meet Your Guide
Athena spent four years living in the City of Lights leading guided tours around the city (on foot and by bicycle), up the Eiffel Tower, offering food, wine and cheese tours, as well as taking guests on walking and biking tours of Versailles. In doing so she delved deeper into her love of how storytelling brings a place to life, and expanded her knowledge of French history, language, food and wine culture. She spent two consecutive harvest seasons working on a vineyard in the Beaujolais region getting to know the process (and the effort!) of good wine-making and developing her French wine palate.
