About

Savor the Harvest shares our food, wine, and everyday experiences here in Bordeaux France and beyond.

Our involvement in wine started casually years ago, advanced to part-time jobs (whether paid or volunteering), and is now serious; Mark is completing a Masters of Vineyard and Winery Management while Lynn pursues wine studies through other channels including the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and the Wine Scholar Guild.

Bordeaux was not our first choice. Nor is it the first type of wine we choose, although one of the best bottles of wine we’ve ever had was from Saint-Julien on the left bank.

When changing life and career from one you’ve been in for years, we though it made more sense to take an easier route. Let me tell you, picking up your life and moving to another country is not easy. But studying in your mother tongue is- it’s definitely not as intense as trying to learn a language and take classes in that language at the same time. A well suited program geared towards international students presented itself in Bordeaux and here we are!
