Georges, who passed away in January 2020 at age 86, was well-known for his dynamism. He founded Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in September, 1964…a historical date that also marked the beginning of his wine merchant business. Georges and his roster became world-famous by carefully selecting, bottling and selling these fine French wines from Beaujolais, and the Maconnais region of Southern Burgundy.
In essence, Georges was the ambassador of the region...loyal to his quest of offering quality wines, combining the flavor profiles of their terroir with bold characters. He conducted his business by negotiating with heart, passion and the constant desire to share the very best of Beaujolais. In continuing the family tradition, Georges’ son Franck runs the family business, with his son Aurélien recently taking a role on the winemaking side, his nephew Adrien on the business side, and Franck’s wife Anne managing the unique “wine-centric” museum, botanical gardens and family-friendly amusement park, Le Hameau Duboeuf.
