The origin of the wine multinational "Boisset, La Famille des Grands Vins" lies in the founding of a vineyard in 1961 in the Nuits-Saint-Georges area (Côte de Nuits, Burgundy) by Jean-Claude Boisset (*1943) together with his wife Claudine. The first Boisset wines came from neighbours and acquaintances. The head office was originally in Vougeot, from where the wines were exported to England. Later, the headquarters were moved to Nuits-Saint-Georges in the former convent Les Ursulines. In 1964, the first vineyard to be acquired was Les Evocelles in Gevrey-Chambertin. The parent vineyard covers 40 hectares of vines with many Grands Crus and Premiers Crus sites. The product portfolio was expanded to include sparkling wines and spirits. Eventually, branches were established in the USA and Canada..
