John Gentzbourger entered the luxury wine and spirit industry over 40 years ago, and progressed from office boy to respected industry figure and acknowledged pioneer. He is best known for his contributions to the meteoric rise of DFS, an involvement that took him several times around the globe and built a solid foundation for Chabot.
John does not believe in taking himself too seriously, but his commitment to Chabot is nothing if not earnest. At the age of 70, he is still actively involved in the business, working closely and proudly with his son Marc. He brings with him a depth of experience that would be hard to match and the pioneering spirit that has enriched his long life.
