French Wines Of Barton & Gustier
Thursday October 6th 2016
Host Chris Ferraro
It was in 1725 that Irishman Thomas Barton settled in Bordeaux to start his company, which is today the city’s oldest winehouse still in activity… His grandson Hugh teamed up with Frenchman Daniel Guestier and in 1802 their partnership became official. From the Chartrons area in the center of Bordeaux, barrels and bottles were loaded on board of ships that sailed via the Garonne river to numerous countries, starting with Ireland, England, Holland and the USA to reach over 130 countries at present.
Chris Ferraro is the New England Sales Director for Barton & Guestier USA. This is his third year with the brand, which itself dates back to 1725 and was the first company to ship French wine to the United States, imported by none other than Thomas Jefferson, himself. Prior to working in the beverage industry, Chris spent 3 years doing national sales for Banco Santander. Before the excursion into finance, Chris was a manager and hospitality consultant for 8 years with restaurants including Erbaluce, Mistral, Teatro, and Restaurant L. He graduated from Tufts University with a degree in International Relations.
