Pauline Vicard co-founded and directs ARENI Global, a research and action institute dedicated to the future of Fine Wine, gathering top international experts in a think- tank format.

Growing up working hands-on in her family vineyard in Burgundy, Pauline broadened her vocational commitment to wine by joining the regional wine body and French Embassies in Cuba and Norway. She then created a successful corporate wine event and education company and was named France’s largest official on-trade union wine educator, before moving to London to lead ARENI.

She is currently studying to be a Master of Wine, an exam famously known as one of the most difficult globally, and a title only held by less than 400 people in the world.

Pauline is also a Wine and Spirit Education Trust-certified educator, mother of two little girls, and an Ultimate Frisbee champion.
