Relais & Châteaux has been striving to share traditions for almost 60 years. Throughout this period, the experienced chefs and maîtres de maison have helped the association create a veritable pool of talent, a jewel that must be preserved and developed.
In the name of our peers, the art of living and long-standing expertise, our core value focuses on the passing on of skills and knowledge. It is natural therefore that Blancpain, the world’s oldest watch-making brand, should be joining our Heritage Trophy. For this prestigious watch-maker, innovation is always synonymous with tradition. The past is an endless source of inspiration.
