Brice de Monplanet discovered Provence in 1981 after his father was transferred to Aix en Provence. He fell in love with on this region, and later moved there with his wife Marion in 1997 and they haven’t left since. During his childhood, Brice’s parents introduced him to the purest French tradition of food and wine. This led to his passion for wine which he loves to share with friends and the people he meets.
After a business career of over 15 years in several international wine and spirit and food companies, Brice decided to pursue his dream to combine his passion with his work, and thus was born Planet Provence.
Trained in oenology in Montpellier Ludivinum School and an epicurean at heart, Brice wants to convey his love for wine and Provence in a friendly and relaxed manner that is also off the beaten track. Having always been passionate about wine and wanting to know more, his aim now is to paint the wine picture in a different way that is both fresh and informative.
Thus, the company Planet Provence has been created and is run in a convivial and enjoyable way. It is really as a result of his ambition that Planet Provence was born and he hopes very much that you will join him !
