SPECIAL GUEST, MAY 13

PHILIPPE DE LUR SALUCES
Co Manager Château de Fargues, France

Philippe de Lur Saluces is the 16th generation of Lur Saluces taking care, with the 15th – his father, Alexandre de Lur Saluces – of 2 estates (Fargues and Uza in the Landes) which arrived by the same marriage in 1472.

The de Lur Saluces family received the iconic Château d’Yquem in 1783. The family managed the estate until 2000 when it was sold to LVMH. Alexandre de Lur Saluces managed Château d’Yquem for more than 30 years. After the sale, the family devoted its passion for winemaking on the Château de Fargues.

Alexandre de Lur Saluces was joined by his son who worked previously in the world of luxury then wine. Philippe stayed with his family starting in 2010 in China working for the biggest wine importer, in charge of 5* hotels and free-standing restaurants in Beijing. He followed his wife in Shanghai where she had a job opportunity and started representing Château de Fargues in Asia.

In 2014, Philippe came back to Bordeaux where he started working at Château de Fargues before managing the family group.

Only after a career as a London theatreland actress, and earning her MBA from INSEAD, did she return to the World of Wine. First, she taught the French how to sell their wines. Then upon returning to Napa, she continued carving her own path. She created Trois Noix a wine that she wants to use as a platform for change.

Then he left for Western Europe and started working in Wine and Spirits. After earning his MBA from INSEAD, he moved to London where he founded Top Selection Wines.

Tanisha Townsend The Wine Hour

TANISHA TOWNSEND
LICENSED TO TASTE

Chief Wine Officer of Girl Meets Glass, Paris.
Born and raised in South Side Chicago, Tanisha was not predestined to the World of Wine. In fact, she started studying cyber forensic. Then serendipity struck twice. The first time was at a Wine Festival in Washington where she asked all the wrong questions possible (so she can relate if you are new to Wine) but was still fascinated by this beverage. The second time was to move to her dream city of Paris. Going to the “Old World” and fulfilling her Wine dream, she pursues her mission to teach and educate about wine.
