Meet the Expert event on 'Bringing the products of small French Wine producers to California: an entrepreneur’s vision'

 Registration is closed for this event


As a French entrepreneur, Frederick met many challenges & opportunities through the process of founding La Cave, his wine business in California. He will share his experience and offer hands-on knowledge on how to import wine and sell direct-to-cosumer sales in the US. 


Frederick grew up in the luxury hospitality industry in Honfleur, France. After his baccalauréat he studied Business & Management at Exeter (UK), including one year study in Valencia, Spain. Returned to the family business in 2011 running Le Manoir des Impressionnistes**** hotel and 3 restaurants. Turned one restaurant into a wine shop - La Cave - in 2015. Moved to Napa, CA in 2016 working for high end, DTC winery (Jessup Cellars) in Yountville as Tasting Room Manager. In 2018 he opened an extension of La Cave in the US - combining both US winery and French hospitality experiences to bridge the gap between French producers & American wine enthusiasts.

La cave is a French wine shop in Napa, California that hosts in home tastings for the San Francisco Bay Area. Our sister shops in Normandy, France selects wines from producers never available in the US before. We curate wine boxes according to lifestyles and are the single link between producers and drinkers. We promote the French 'savoir-vivre' & gastronomy in the US.                                                             ​​​​​​
