For more than four centuries, the Duboeuf family has been producing wine. Georges, well known for his dynamism, created Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in September of 1964. This historical date also marks the start of his wine merchant business, selecting, bottling and selling fine French wines from the Beaujolais and Maconnais regions of Burgundy and, in the process, becoming world-famous. Georges has become, in a sense, the ambassador of the region. He has remained loyal to his quest of offering quality wines, combining the flavor profiles of their terroir with bold characters. He conducts his business by negotiating with heart, passion, and the constant desire to share the very best of Beaujolais. In continuing the family tradition, Georges and his wife Rolande are joined by their son Franck and his wife Anne who manage the family business.

While clos are present in legions in Cote d’Or, they are very rare in Beaujolais. Le Clos des Quatre Vents comprises 30 acres and the vineyards surround a beautiful building screened by pine trees along the hill that borders the village of Fleurie. Forty-four acres of vineyards were owned by Dr. Darroze from 1955 until 2005. From 2005 his wife and children took over the management of the property. Lovingly tended by winemakers Bruno and Andre Montangeron Marion, Clos des Quatre Vents has excellent exposure and magnificent granite soil. Georges Duboeuf has purchased the entire production of the estate for 30 years.
