Meet Our Team
Laure Levesque

Laure Levesque

President & Chief Tasting Officer
A French native, Laure has been fortunate enough to grow up in a family strongly connected to wine, with vineyards in several wine regions in France, and for whom wine truly defines a way of life.

After a 20-year career in the corporate world as an International Marketing Executive, at Procter and Gamble/Nivea/Coty/L’Oréal, Laure decided to create Queen of Wines LLC out of passion. Her company’s mission is to connect wine lovers in the US with smaller family-owned estates who have been producing highly sustainable, authentic wines for generations.

She started to source, import, and distribute a curated selection of “gem wines” from a variety of terrors and appellations, in France/Italy/Germany/USA. Laure and her team are dedicated to expanding wine lovers’ palate, inviting them to create fond memories on a personal journey to the heart of the vineyards.
