While in Beverly Hills, you can drink and eat as though you are in France.
Wine-maker Jordane Andrieu, the owner of a biodynamic wine estate near Meursault in Burgundy, recently opened a not-to-miss hang-out in Los Angeles.
Sitting at the zinc bar, the bistro table or in the homey wing chairs in this cozy, comfortable yet very stylish environment, you will leave with the delightful feeling that you spent the evening in Paris.
Wines are organic, biodynamic or natural (really great experience), food is French. The knowledgeable service offers an interactive education in fine wines, with exceptional hospitality.
Jordane Andrieu was born in Paris under a rich heritage of wine and hospitality. Jordane moved to Burgundy to meet a new challenge by taking over his father's vineyard a few years ago. While in Burgundy, Jordane was able to transform a small domaine into a well-known organic estate in Auxey-Duresses, next to Meursault. With both an MBA and a degree in oenology, he is the current manager of Clos du Moulin aux Moines, one of the oldest vineyards in Côte d’Or. Since 2008, the Estate has acquired vines, doubled its production and its wines are now being sold in 16 countries.
Jordane has always believed the wine experience to be one of a symbiotic nature. These dual influences have resulted in the birth of Héritage Fine Wines. Héritage reflects the harmonious equilibrium between authenticity of experience and high quality products to illustrate an accurate and authentic reflection of the land they come from. With Héritage, Jordane was inspired to create a tasting and unprecedented retail experience by offering a carefully curated selection of French labels which range from unpretentious wines all the way to elegant and rare wines, focusing on value and experience, delivering high quality to the clientele.
Like his wines, Jordane and the Héritage experience is memorable and complex, an experience like no other. An intricate blend of artistic vision, scientific training, spirit and grace, Jordane and his new boutique wine shop will leave a lasting impression for many years to come. Héritage is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore and indulge in France’s most celebrated wines, right in the heart of Beverly Hills.
Jordane has also enlisted Mariage Frères, a refined, exclusive and quality Tea House in Paris since 1854, and his childhood friend, Apollonia Poilâne, from the famed Poilane Bakery in St Germain-des-Prés in Paris, to add a little more of France into Héritage’s in store experience. Poilâne sourdough country loaf and Mariage Frères’ teas are a staple in French gastronomy that has been enjoyed in France for centuries and is now available in Southern California, exclusively through Héritage.
Charles obtained his Master’s degree in Hospitality management with the famous International school Vatel.
Growing up on a vineyard in South of France, in a family with a long story of wine-making in Champagne he always knew that he would be led to come back to the wine industry one day. More than a Passion we can say that wine was more of a lifestyle for him wether he was working in the winery, on the road selling wines or working as a sommelier… you will always see him with a glass of wine in his hand.
His first sommelier experiences was in a 2 Michelin star restaurant in Barcelona by the famous Catalan chef Paco Perez where he learnt from incredible sommeliers and professionals always trying to reach for perfection.
Charles kept working abroad in China, France, Spain ,Australia, America, exploring, tasting and getting inspired. He worked in many different types of establishments from the fancy restaurant to the lively wine bar, passing by more corporate Hotel Brands.
He made the conclusion that wine can be narrowed down to the simple pleasure of sharing a good bottle and a stimulating conversation with a good friend.
Heritage was the perfect balance he was looking for between refined ambiance, authenticity and warm atmosphere while offering an incredible wine selection.
