FOUNDER and CEO

Denis Houlès has been an enthusiastic wine collector for decades and has developed an extensive network of relationships with winemakers around the world.

 

Born in France, Denis graduated from French Engineering Schools, and then followed a post-graduate degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston.

 

Denis worked in Rome with Procter & Gamble, in London with McKinsey & Company.  He obtained his MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University in 2001.

"The development of personal relationships with the men and the women behind the most famous wines nurtured my endless passion for fine wine.

 

World-class winemakers inspire me because they beat adversity and irrationality daily, are relentless against nature, never compromise for anything less than perfection, yet remain humble and approachable.


I am a firm believer that there are many benefits from bringing the world of fine wines closer to the community of business and opinion leaders."
