In 2007, Francois Gaillard decided to open his company, providing export services to French estates. As his previous career in the US provided him with enough contacts in the wine industry, it made sense to bring together suppliers and clients. 71 Vintage provides its services as a niche wine export sales and marketing company specializing in the dynamic US market.
The role of 71 Vintage is to be a commercial agent for both imports and exports. As an import/export consultant, 71 Vintage assists in sourcing, selecting, developing business contacts, and maintaining relationships between French producers and US clients.
