About Georges Duboeuf
Georges Duboeuf was born to a family of vineyard owners and grape growers in the Macon region of Southern Burgundy. When his father died, he took over the family business and began producing and bottling his own wines from his family’s vineyards rather than selling to a negociant. Eventually, he would encourage other small family growers throughout the region to do the same and help them in their endeavors through the creation of his mobile bottling truck. This represented a huge shift away from negociant wines that were blends of grapes grown throughout the region to single-estate bottlings that he would then bring to market. He traveled, by bicycle, to local restaurants and eventually to Lyon – the heart of French gastronomy – where it was
put on some of the best restaurant lists. The story goes that Paul Bocuse tasted his whites, purchased them, and said if Georges could make a red as
good as his whites, he would buy that, too. In 1982, Georges Duboeuf brought the first bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau to the U.S. and thus began an annual tradition that would grow into the biggest wine celebration in the world.
