Meet Lauren - French Certified Sommelier

Once upon a time, NOT such a long time ago there was a little girl called Lauren Caro, who lived surrounded by some of the best and most beautiful vineyards of France. Lauren’s grandfather loved good wine so much he used to put a tiny drop of some of his favourites wines in a glass of water for Lauren to drink at meal times, hoping to pass on his passion.

Lauren Caro was born in the gastronomic heart of France- Lyon, a city surrounded by the greatest French wines- wines such as Burgundy, Beaujolais, Jura and Cotes du Rhone.
The daughter of the owner of Caro de Lyon(a well loved restaurant in the city center) and passionate about the magic woven by the marriage of great food and great wine, Lauren decided early on to make her love of wine her career.

Accepted to University of Suze La Rousse in 2011, Lauren became a certified Sommelier while working with her father and Family at the restaurant for 8 years.

He gave her the freedom to create Le Petit Bar- a concept that would break away from the cliche of established wine, Lauren brought us to a new exciting world of making the wine experience fun, playful and original.
