RHD welcomes Jean-Charles Boisset of Boisset Collection as honorary chair for the 2019 Main Line Wine Gala.
Jean-Charles Boisset was born into the world of wine in the village of Vougeot, Burgundy, France. His lifelong passion for wine began as a child, as he grew up above the cellars and within view of the centuries-old vineyards of Château du Clos de Vougeot, the epicenter and birthplace of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Today, the family collection includes wineries that share more than 20 centuries of combined winemaking heritage and tradition in some of the world’s most prestigious terroirs, from Burgundy to the South of France, to California’s Napa Valley and Russian River Valley.
Jean-Charles leads the family firm with passionate commitment to fine wine, history, quality and a deep respect for the environment. He implemented organic and Biodynamic farming at all of the family’s estate vineyards in Burgundy and California. In addition, he has expanded from the world of wine to include a lifestyle vision; he has created a namesake JCB Jewelry collection, glassware from The Passion Collection created by Jean-Charles Boisset and Baccarat, as well as a selection of candles and lifestyle accessories that exemplify the JCB world of hospitality and entertaining. In 2018 Jean-Charles continued his legacy of pioneering innovations with the introduction of JCB Spirits, luxury vodkas and gin distilled from Burgundy wine made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that includes the first-ever caviar-infused and truffle-infused vodkas.
