Joie de Vivre

Jean-Charles Boisset takes on Silicon Valley with an oh-so-chic pop-up wine tasting salon at Rosewood Sand Hill.

Jean-Charles Boisset and Rosewood Sand Hill Managing Director Philip Meyer

Globetrotting bon vivant and dear friend of Gentry Jean-Charles Boisset is a connoisseur of the good life. He is most famous for his collection of superb wineries that include everything from Raymond to the historic Buena Vista, but the eponymous project that is near and dear to his heart is JCB—renowned for its rich cabernets, sumptuous packaging, and award-winning champagnes. Oenophiles flock to Boisset’s surreal JCB tasting salons in Yountville, Healdsburg, and St. Helena as well as JCB lounge at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco. Now, Boisset is bringing a little of that JCB magic to Silicon Valley with a luxuriously cozy new wine tasting salon at Rosewood Sand Hill. Be sure to stop in for a glass of bubbles and peruse the dazzling JCB collections of Baccarat crystal, fragrance, and jewelry.  |
