Our story

The family secret we couldn’t keep to ourselves

Coming to America

In an effort to control its own destiny in the US market, Albert Bichot USA was formed in 2007. A vision of Alberic Bichot, it is the first and only wholly owned subsidiary of the 1831-founded Domaines Albert Bichot, now covering 48 states plus the District of Columbia.

Based in Richmond, VA, our mission since inception has been to bring the culture of our parent winery closer to the U.S. market while focusing on brand building and a foundation for long-term growth.

Beyond Burgundy

In 2021, we began expanding to include producer partnerships outside of Burgundy with the same mission in mind. With a focus on brand-building first, we partner with wineries that share the same synergies and values as our parent winery:

  • Generationally family-owned
  • Control over production through domaine/vineyard ownership
  • Scalability on a national basis
  • Forward-thinking, especially in regard to land and environment

Bearing Fruit

With regional managers based nationwide and a dedicated national account strategy, Albert Bichot USA takes a bigger picture, long-term brand-building approach to each of its brands and partnerships. Current partnerships outside of Burgundy include regions such as Languedoc, Champagne and Loire Valley.

with Values

It is the duty of Albert Bichot USA and its employees to represent every winery partner as if it were our own family. It is up to us to carry out the wishes and strategy of our winery partners while offering input with regard to best practices.
