Born and raised in Provence, Bruno studied Hotel Management at the Institut Vatel in Lyon and spent a year at a five-star hotel in the French West Indies. He returned to France to pursue an additional degree in Marketing and Winemaking at the University of Wine in Suze-la-Rousse, then relocated to California. After working for two years at Regency wines, a Los Angeles-based French importer, Bruno found his place in the active travel industry. To his experiences in Europe, Morocco, and South America, Bruno contributed his extensive knowledge and passion for wine, local architecture, truffles, olive trees, and seeing life from a bike saddle. With DuVine, his favorite part of any tour is sharing his knowledge with guests to empower them with the feeling of being local.
