Dominique Sachs founded Grand Cru Atelier with a mission to bring the finest French estate wines to connoisseurs at competitive prices.  A native of France, Dominique grew up immersed in the culture of wine and the importance of terroir, or the environmental and farming practices that affect the quality of grapes. After a successful career in luxury fashion management, she pursued her life’s passion, first working in high-end wine importation and distribution. Through the experience Dominique has traveled to the vineyards of Bordeaux and all across France to source the finest wines and cultivate relationships that have allowed Grand Cru Atelier the privilege of bringing them direct to consumers.

Grand Cru Atelier serves clients by carrying the very best French wines and assuring the authenticity of Classified Great Growths. Similarly, the best winemakers trust Grand Cru Atelier to represent their estates and properly handle the wines until they reach customers. To do this Grand Cru Atelier stores its wines in a special temperature controlled warehouse. 

“Le vin est de l'eau emplie de soleil” is French for “Wine is water filled with sunshine.” That wine is the closest thing our planet has to an elixir of life. With Grand Cru Atelier, Dominique's passion is to share the best.
