Damien Georis’s Passion for wine was ignited as a young boy in Belgium when an old family friend, Madeleine, gave him his first sip. Over countless visits and explorations of her incredible wine cellar, Damien’s interest grew, laying the foundations of a future career. After studying enology at Bordeaux University, Damien found further inspiration in France’s Loire Valley and its signature grape Cabernet Franc. As he moved to California in 2005, he decided to create a wine that would express the best of this elegant, delicate and refined varietal. It was to be named Madeleine. Not forgetting his first love for Bordeaux, he later released the Madeleine “Left Bank” cuvee, a Cabernet Sauvignon blend with a touch of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In 2008, Madeleine “L’Arsouille” Pinot Blanc completed the line-up. Crisp and refreshing, this wine is crafted to reveal the subtlety and complexity of this underrated grape.
