Francois is the leader of the pack; importing fine Italian wines is what he does. Have a favorite? In all likelihood, he introduced it to the States years ago, though he would never boast. Always remembered for his charm and good cheer, he is a pioneer in the field. Francois has organically gathered this troupe of merry men and woman from all parts of the US, teaming together in the pursuit of bringing fine, small, artisanal wines to the everyday consumer. Francois lives half the time in the Swiss Alps, and the other half, he lives in a seafaring, historic town on the Northshore of Massachusetts. He is an adventurous freedom lover who enjoys riding his bike, finding the best lobster roll on the East coast, and hiking with his very large dog Brando and his very cuddly pup Bear.
