Born in Bordeaux and educated in the U.S, Sacha Lichine began working at his family’s property, Chateau Prieuré Lichine, during the summers of his youth. At age 23, Sacha began his career by engaging in a variety of endevors including organizing luxury wine tours in France and establishing a negociant Sacha Lichine Estate Selections for wines from Burgundy and the Rhone.
Other endevors included working as a Sommelier at Anthony Pier 4 restaurant in Boston and for a major U.S. based distributor, Southern Wine & Spirit, as well as establishing a distributorship in the Caribbean.
A defining moment in Sacha’s career came about when he started running Château Prieure Lichine at age 27.
In 1990 Sacha started a negociant business, Borvin, which he still operates focusing on selecting the best wines from Bordeaux. Recognizing the importance of innovation in an increasingly varied wine industry around the world, Sacha developed a line of new world wines from France, Sacha Lichine – Vins Sans Frontieres which today consists of a selection of growers and wines crafted through out the regions of France.
His 2006 acquisition of Chateau d’Esclans in Provence has resulted in building a world class brand while providing a strong contribution to unprecedented growth within the Rose category.
