Georges Duboeuf Wines
Georges Duboeuf wines are known throughout the world. From New-York to Tokyo the company has a solid reputation as an ambassador for France, and in particular for the Beaujolais region. But the large and festive campaigns it orchestrates for Beaujolais Nouveau every year shouldn’t overshadow the fact that Georges Duboeuf, who created the company in 1964, is above all a winemaker born in the Mâconnais and close to his roots. He is extremely knowledgeable about the land, the vineyards, the men who cultivate them, and is recognized as an excellent taster with a demanding palate.
Bocuse d’Or fans are familiar with his son Franck who runs the business end of this major firm, among the 10 largest wine merchants in France.
The long and impressive list of Georges Duboeuf appellations gives a more concrete idea of what the company has to offer wine-lovers, whether their taste buds are more attuned to Gamay grapes, featuring Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Côte-de-Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin à Vent, Régnié and Saint Amour, or Chardonnay with Mâcon Villages blanc, St Véran and Pouilly Fuissé, or even the now famous Terradria, grown in southwestern France, Gold medal winner and First in the Top 10 Best Chardonnays in the World contest in 2011! The Viognier de l’Ardèche is another wine Duboeuf offers from the South of France - this time from the Rhone Valley.
Duboeuf’s passion for wine has also inspired the firm to create the Hameau du Vin (Wine Park), an amazing museum entirely devoted to the history of wine and vineyards.
