About today’s guest:
François Schenk is the owner of Schenk, one of Europe’s most successful wine production and trading companies. He was born in Rolle on Lake Geneva, where he now also lives. He received an excellent education and mastered the wine industry from the bottom up, attending both the Wine School at Changins in Switzerland and UC Davis in California. In doing so, Schenk realised the vision of the company’s founder, who 125 years ago set himself the goal of developing a wine trading company with an international reputation operating out of Switzerland. Today, François Schenk is providing the Schenk Group with the impetus to preserve what has already been built, develop it further and lead the company into the future.
