Cynthia Coutu is Canadian and has been living in Paris for 30 years. She obtained a B.A. in Fine Arts (Photography) in Canada, then came to France to do a Masters in Art History at the Sorbonne. Her love of wine and cheese kept her in France.

After working at the Canadian Embassy in France and the OECD for 20 years managing their digital communications, she hung up her international civil servant hat and pursued her passion. She studied wine at L’Académie du Vin and L’École du Vin, and is certified Wine and Spirits Education Trust Level 3 with Merit. She then specialised in champagne – the king of wines and the wines of kings!

She founded Delectabulles, a champagne networking club for women. She hosts champagne workshops in Paris, judges wine contests, and loves taking people to visit her favourite producers in Champagne. She only uses champagnes made by women, and only takes guests to visit champagne houses where women play an important role. It is her small way of supporting women in the male-dominated wine industry.

She has been mentioned in Le Monde, New York Times and Paris Match. She was also voted “Best Wine Tasting in Paris” by Expatriates Magazine and “Best Wine Experience in Paris” by Travel and Hospitality Awards. She is currently researching the role of women in the history of Champagne for a book project.
