De Maison Selections is the exclusive US importer of exceptional wines, ciders, sherries and spirits from their family of independent producers in Spain and France. De Maison Selections was founded by André Tamers in 1996, upon his return from a three-year journey throughout Spain. It was at this time that we first met André. He named his company in honor of his mother, whose family roots go back to Haute-Savoie in France. Her father had three children, all daughters, thus the name De Maison was destined to disappear. In choosing this moniker, André was able to effect a continuation of the De Maison family name, which would not otherwise have been possible.
The focus of the portfolio is on exceptional family-held properties from Spain and France, which are rooted in their land, and show a respect for their ecology and heritage. It is this originality of identity and intent which defines individual producers in crafting their expression of each wine. The current generation of producers De Maison represents perpetuate their families’ commitment to the sustainability of their culture and environment. For André and his company, their devotion to these values extends to company-wide initiatives such as a solar powered home-office, cold-chain technology, creative and educational initiatives, philanthropy and progressive logistics, among other initiatives.
It’s hard for us to believe that this will be our first wine dinner with De Maison, and we are very excited for it. Chef Todd Whitney sat down with Philippe Broome, the regional sales manager for De Maison, and tasted through about a dozen wines to make selections for the dinner. If you’ve been to any of our previous dinners, you are well aware of Chef Whitney’s mastery in the art of food and wine parings. This promises to be a phenomenal evening, which you will not want to miss!
