Jean-Claude Boisset Wine Dinner with Special Guest Neil Ruane
Neil has worked in the wine and spirits industry since 1996 and has been the USA Export Director for The Boisset Family since 2009. He is passionate about Burgundy where he lived for 23 years and its regional wines. He has come to understand the complexity of its « terroirs », the annual trials and tribulations of its growers and winemakers, but most of all to appreciate the wonderful diversity of its wines; legendary chardonnays and pinot noirs from the most complex yet astounding collection of Vineyards on earth.
Boisset is a family-owned collection of historic and unique wineries in France and California bound together by a common cause: authentic, terroir-driven wines in harmony with their history, their future and the land and people essential to their existence. With more than twenty historical and prestigious wineries in the world’s preeminent terroirs, including the Côte d’Or, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley, California’s Russian River Valley and the Napa Valley, each house retains its unique history, identity, and style, and all are united in the pursuit of fine wines expressive of their terroir.
