St Emilion’s train station is a great place. You gotta love it. Why ? Well if you’re there, it means you’re in an absolutely gorgeous part of France. Imagine the picture: vineyards everywhere, the blue sky, 5 min walk time from the beautiful village of St Emilion, and this unique French lifestyle atmosphere.
Toward the end of July, something made this place even more special when I came across a young man approximately my age. Obviously he wasn’t from here, so I asked where he was from:
“And what brings you here ?”
“I’m here until September, and am visiting as many Chateaux as possible. Wine is my passion.”
I then paused for 2 seconds, thinking about how this area seems to be synonymous for passion, and therefore attracts passionate people from all horizons. And meeting Kenny this day reminded me it’s always a gift to connect with such people.
As we started to discuss back and forth, Kenny proposed to add me as a contributor to his blog. The desire to contribute was quite obvious from the beginning, even though I had no precise idea about what my contribution could be about.
Here is some info to give you an idea of who Seb is :
Name : Seb Zar Bourcheix
Age : 31
French, currently living in St Emilion area.
Profession : no such word in my language, I make a living with my PASSION. My passion is to create Art. Sculpture, and more.

You will learn more as we go on this journey together. I’m really looking forward to this adventure. While I’m certainly not a wine expert (yet !), wine is in my DNA and I am convinced that the value for thegrandcrew visitors is the different perspective that I can bring. As you perhaps suspect, the process of producing wine and the process of producing art, have more similarities than one would expect.
Talking about expectations, make sure that you work on your French, as there will be posts 100% in French, making this blog your multi-cultural / polyglot wine rendez-vous.
Alors levons tous nos verres pour célébrer le partage de nos passions qui nous rassemblent !
