Wine Liaisons Artist in Residence
An Englishman who has lived and worked in France for more than 30 years, Brendan Moore originally crossed the channel in the early 80s to run a hotel barge on the Canal du Midi in the south of France. The area’s vineyards quickly became one of his favorite cruise themes and ultimately steered him to Burgundy, where he captained luxury barges specializing in wine cruises. Over time, with his home base in Burgundy, he developed strong ties with the area’s wine-producing community and later acquired additional expertise working for a prestigious Chablis Domaine. Keen to share his knowledge and love of wine, Wine Liaisons was born in 2000. As his reputation became known over the years, Brendan’s expertise has been tapped from time to time for documentaries and in wine publications.
His input is also included in the heralded Hachette Wine Guide, effectively the French wine bible. As evidenced from What Guests Say while Brendan has vast personal wine producer connections and exhaustive wine expertise, he guides guests through new wines and regions in a relaxed, approachable way. Many of his clients have become loyal, repeat customers over the years. Brendan lives in Chablis with his wife, Jo. They have two grown children, Angus and Elsie
