About us


Baron Francois Ltd was founded in 1982 by Mr. Adrien Baron, native of Southwest of France.

Our family owned company rapidly became well known as a key supplier of French wines

to the finest wine shops, hotels and restaurants in New York City. Baron Francois’ portfolio

shares the terroir of wine regions and knowhow of family winemakers.



The Lesgourgues family took over Baron Francois in 2000. They produce and distribute, among other fine French estates, the acclaimed Château de Laubade Bas-Armagnac and the rising star of the Graves, Château Haut Selve. The extensive portfolio of Baron Francois is dedicated to family owned single vineyard estates with whom the company maintains faithful relations vintage after vintage. Baron Francois’ tasting Committee is very strict and there is a long process to ensure the best value to our customers and final consumers. It has the objective to select elegant and well-balanced wines from producers who embody their “terroir”.




Baron Francois is also devoted to assist its customers in their retailing activities with a policy of high quality service and a neighborly attitude of long term partnerships. For the past years, Baron Francois extended its range of products to the rest of the world such as Spain, Italy, Germany, California, New Zealand and Uruguay with top rated and awarded premium Wines and Spirits.
