    Wine, Art, Creativity and the Metaverse - Connecting all the dots with Jean-Charles Boisset

    Wine, Art, Creativity and the Metaverse - Connecting all the dots with Jean-Charles Boisset

    Today’s podcast is about finding creativity and inspiration through wine.

    In this episode we sit down with Jean-Charles Boisset to discuss his vision of wine through art, and how we might be closer than ever to the vineyards through the Metaverse.

    I consider Jean-Charles Boisset to be an artist who embraces so many facets of the wine industry, expressing it through jewelry, art, perfume, and entertainment.

    Jean-Charles’ passion for California and California wineries endowed with history, heritage and a pioneering spirit led him to Sonoma County in 2003, where he purchased DeLoach Vineyards, an early producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in the esteemed Russian River Valley. This set to motion further purchases of distinct wineries and destinations in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County, including Raymond Vineyards, Buena Vista Winery, Oakville Grocery, and in 2021 The Ink House Luxury Inn and Elizabeth Spencer Winery in Rutherford.

Cool podcast to see what’s happening in the market and gain some real perspective about the industry. Excellent insights to the wine and drink market from a real pro.
