Wine, Cheese & Paradise

Who in the world are more famous for their wine and cheese than the French?  What some people don’t realize is French Polynesia is a territory of France and therefore all the amazing French culinary aspects flow right into the islands and blue lagoons.   In fact each year the Sofitel resorts put on an incredible not be missed event.

Master chef Olivier Poulard

Sofitel’s ambition is to become the ambassador of French art de vivre around the world. Sofitel French Polynesia has organized the annual cheese and wine event for the past 18 years. It is a unique occasion to taste French terroir in the exceptional grounds of Moorea and Bora Bora. This year, events will take place directly on the white sand beaches and in the properties’ restaurants.

Bora Bora Champage

Sofitel French Polynesia in partnership will welcome one of the most famous Cheese Masters, Mr Olivier Poulard, for a series of events around cheese and wines. Exceptional dinners as well as Chic Apéritifs will be organized on the beach at Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort and Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island from September 20 to October 4, 2017.

Mr Olivier Poulard will work closely with Sommelier, Mr Fabrice Jarry, and Chief Consultant, Mr Guillaume Burlion. These three professionals will work together to showcase an exclusive French gastronomic experience.

While it may be to late to plan our trip to Tahiti for this year’s functions, it is an annual occasion and for all you Foodies out there, why don’t we work on planning your trip to paradise next year around the event?   And if you are not into this culinary event – know that you can still get a great French culinary experience in the islands anytime you visit!!

Bon Voyage!!
