About Us / Madeleine Winery History: Damien Georis's passion for wine was ignited as a young boy in Belgium when an old family friend,Madeleine, gave him his first sip. Over countless visits and explorations of her incredible wine cellar,Damien's interest grew, laying the foundations for a future career. After studying enology at BordeauxUniversity, Damien found further inspiration in France's Loire Valley and its signature grape CabernetFranc. As he moved to California in 2005, he was decided to create a wine that would express the best ofthis elegant, delicate and refined varietal. It was to be named Madeleine.Later, Damien completed the Madeleine line-up with a white cuvee made of Pinot Blanc,called "L'Arsouille" and an organic and sulfite-free Syrah called Madeleine "Au Naturel".All Madeleine wines are made in Carmel Valley and the total production is 450 cases.
