Jean Aubry’s passion for wine began in 1979, when he decided to make wine his profession, starting his education at the Institut d’Oenologie de Bordeaux where he obtained a tasting diploma in 1986 (D.U.A.D.). Following his studies, he apprenticed under Jean-Claude Berrouet, making wine at Châteaux Lafleur-Gazin & Petrus. Then came a stage in Champagne at Taittinger in 1989 where he learned the art of Champagne making. From 2003 to 2007, Aubry set up a school in Paris dedicated to teaching women about wine called, «L’École des Femmes du Vin». Back in Quebec, he pursued his profession working in restaurants (developing wine lists and training staff), hosting wine-tasting conferences, and penning a weekly column at the daily newspaper, Le Devoir, since 1993. Aubry has been awarded prizes for his writing in Burgundy and Bordeaux, and is recognized internationally for his professionalism and writings on wine and spirits. Aubry has also authored Quebec’s favourite wine guide, the best-selling «Le Guide Aubry des 100 meilleurs vins à moins de 25$» (Transcontinental publishers) for 13 editions.
