Cheryl Francis is a Los Angeles gal who took her Biology degree from Lewis and Clark College in Portland to France where she studied Enology. She worked three harvests in New Zealand before returning to Oregon to make wine for Chehalem for eight years. She joined her husband, Sam, and Deb and Bill Hatcher in A to Z Wineworks, REX HILL as well as making Francis Tannahill wines with Sam.

Nicolas Potel, after his first steps as winemaker in the family Estate in Volnay: le Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, he built up his own negoce in 1996 then, in 2000, Maison Potel-Aviron in Beaujolais region. In 2005, Nicolas built up his own Estate, Domaine de Bellene, in Beaune with 15 Ha of organic vines in Côte de Beaune. In 2008, after the departure from SAS Nicolas Potel company, Nicolas Potel launches his new negociant business called “Maison Roche de Bellene“. The philosophy is the same as Nicolas used to in Nuits-Saint-Georges: we have been keeping the same source of wines and the same relationship with growers that Nicolas have been working with the last 15 years: “One extremely important difference from the past is the we are now only focusing on offering the finest wines, in limited cuvées in order to achieve our goal: being the only “Haute Couture” negociant in Burgundy”. Nicolas is known the bad boy of Burgundy, but he is impossible not to love.
