Gabrielle Vizzavona

Wine expert, speaker

A Parisian with Corsican roots (her name means “good view” in Corsican), Gabrielle has been passionate about wine from the start.

From her first school project to her first vinification experience at the age of 9, her childhood memories are filled with numerous dinners with her grandfather, an experienced winemaker and wine trader. He allowed her to taste, just a little sip, of the most enchanting wines… which set her on a course to become one of the biggest wine advocates in Paris.


She advocates responsible farming, organic and biodynamic viticulture.


Gabrielle is a speaker in many of the biggest wine and gastronomy trade events (Vinexpo, Salon du Chocolat, Primeurs de Bordeaux) for which she hosts Master classes and live Tastings. She also organizes wine-related events for a wide range of clients outside the industry (Festival de Cannes, Grand Prix de Monaco, and large fashion brands such as Ralph Lauren).

As a wine expert who gets to taste more than 5000 wines a year, Gabrielle has travelled to more than 30 wine producing countries to discover the fascinating art of wine making and wine tasting. After earning an economics degree from La Sorbonne, she made the decision to pursue her passion for wine. Gabrielle spent 4 years of rigorous training at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), the International Wine Organization masters and Davis CA, where she received their flagship qualifications.


Journalist, professional taster, TV presenter and international speaker, Gabrielle has a portfolio of activities that keeps her very busy!
