Proprietor, Boisset Collection
Jean-Charles Boisset was born into the world of wine in the village of Vougeot, Burgundy, France. His parents founded the family winery in 1961 with an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in one of the most traditional winegrowing regions in the world. He implemented organic and Biodynamic farming at all of the family’s estate vineyards in Burgundy and California. Jean-Charles brought DeLoach Vineyards, a pioneering producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, into the family collection. He began a mission, inspired by his Burgundian heritage to produce terroir-driven wines with the same commitment to terroir and organic and Biodynamic farming he had instituted in Burgundy. Decanter magazine has included him on its “Power List” of the 50 most important people in the wine world each year of its publication since 2007.
