Group or private workshops in Albi, everywhere in the Tarn and at home

It is Albi that Anne has chosen as the capital of her workshops. Right in the heart of the episcopal city, the vaulted brick cellar of the Bureau d'à Côté lends itself, for example, perfectly to the warm atmosphere of these moments. For private events, Anne & Bacchus also travels to homes, business premises and seminar rooms. And this everywhere in the Tarn, as far as Toulouse and Occitanie. Collective workshops are organized regularly, the program is available on social networks and soon on the website

In Albi, these oenology workshops take place at the “Bureau d'à Côté”, a stone's throw from the covered market and the Sainte Cécile Cathedral. The vaulted brick cellar of this space lends itself perfectly to the warm atmosphere of Anne & Bacchus' tasting workshops.

Take advantage of the present moment in a small group

Anne & Bacchus wishes to offer participants moments of discovery where it is fun to learn and discuss, in a fun and friendly atmosphere. To promote the link between all, small groups of a maximum of ten people are preferred. Launched gradually, the workshops all include dedicated support so as not to lose a drop and take full advantage of the moment.
