Philippe Etchebest, chef of the Saint-Emilion Jurade’s Gala Dinner at Vinexpo 2013

Have you heard of the chef Philippe Etchebest?

Well-known in Saint-Emilion, he is the very soul of the restaurant Hostellerie de Plaisance, which proudly displays 2 Michelin stars. You can’t have great cuisine without great wine, so it is hardly surprising that Philippe Etchebest has become the first chef to be inducted as a Jurat of the Saint-Emilion Jurade.

See the ceremony, high in tradition and emotion, when Philippe Etchebest was dubbed an ambassador of Saint-Emilion wines.
