VINERGIE VINS DE FRANCE is the American branch of VINERGIE DIVINIA, a company founded by Christophe Mingeaud in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in 2003 focused on the international promotion and sales of wines from a select group of limited-production, artisan Rhône Valley producers. The U.S company, founded in 2014, is a partnership between Mingeaud and American industry veteran John O’Neill, a former Kobrand Regional Manager and Co-Founder of Vintage ’59 Imports. The duo has expanded the company scope to include like-minded vignerons in other French growing regions. All of the producers in the Vinergie portfolio are committed to the expression of terroir, sustainable/organic vineyard practices and a non-manipulative approach in the cellar. Most of of the Vinergie winemakers are recognized as quality leaders in their respective appellations while a few younger enlistees have already demonstrated the passion and potential to become stars in the very near future.
