OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our wines come from vignerons that embrace traditional winemaking methods, who are working with a deep respect for terroir : the ‘new France’ that is embracing ‘old world’ traditions. These producers tend to work organically in the vineyard and with minimal intervention in the cellar.

We’re looking for wines with personality and a distinctive sense of place, wines that will mark the moment, from a weeknight dinner to a special occasion. We’re looking for wines that go well with food, wines that are easy to drink, and where the first empty bottle leads easily to the second.

We like wines that taste good. Doesn't everybody?

THE TEAM

JOSH ADLER

josh@pariswinecompany.com

Josh learned about wine the old-fashioned way - tasting Pinot Noir in 18th-century cellars in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. After a stint leading bicycle tours in French wine regions, he worked as the wine director at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco and Restaurant Spring in Paris before starting Paris Wine Company in 2012.

If you have an hour with nothing better to do, you can listen to Levi Dalton’s 2014 interview with Josh for his podcast I’ll Drink to That.

 

FRANCESCA HANSEN

Francesca first got the wine bug after a gruelling hike through Cahors somehow ended up at a winery. She initially moved to Paris to finish a B.A/M.A. in Political Science from Johns Hopkins and Sciences Po, and has lived there for over 10 years. She joined Paris Wine Company in early 2014. Her ideal last meal would be white Burgundy and mac n’cheese.
