Honest grapes


Wine Buyer

Born in Paris, Rebecca’s career started in 2006 after graduating a Master’s degree in Economics from the Sorbonne. Before applying to jobs related to her studies, she followed her boyfriend (now her husband) to California and applied to a few summer jobs including one for a French wine importer. Although she spent the first 25 years of her life in France, Rebecca had no prior knowledge about wine and had to travel over 5,500 miles to discover her lifetime passion, wine. After spending two years in the US, she then returned to France and worked with a few French wineries as an export manager, before moving to London in 2011. She first worked for an off-trade agent, a Burgundy specialist and then set up her own company in 2012, La Marchande, supplying French wines for premium UK on-trade audience. In 2018, Rebecca joined Enotria & Coe, revamping their French Wine selection in recruiting exceptional agencies in addition to fine wine buying. Genuinely passionate with a great sense of humour, she is addicted to learn and discuss about any aspects related to wine.
