Her family had a significant influence on her love for food and wines, farmer and winegrower, she learned early on that quality products make the best dishes or wines. At 15, Perrine attended a culinary school in France. During those four years, she traveled extensively throughout France, working in various kitchens and eventually deciding to pursue her wine passion. â€œThe night a customer gave me a taste of 1945 Chateau Dâ€™Yquem, I understood Iâ€™ll be missing out if I only worked in the kitchen.â€ Â She soon after started a Sommelier school in Dijon and learned a lot about wine. She worked as a sommelier in the 2 Michelin Star restaurant Le Gavroche in London. There, Perrine could expand her knowledge, taste incredible wines and maintain the rigorous Michelin Star standards. Perrineâ€™s original dream was to open a wine bar in France, but she wasnâ€™t yet ready to settle in Burgundy after this experience in London.
â€¨In 2006 she moved to Atlanta and worked at JOÃ‹L Restaurant; in 2010, she opened Perrineâ€™s Wine Shop on the Westside.
