The Founders

Edouard DAMIDOT – A passionate entrepreneur

Édouard has revived his family’s tradition, which is rooted in blackcurrants. His ancestors have always cultivated this berry, following in his great-greatuncle Gabriel Damidot’s footsteps, as far as to trademark the Kir brand. With a passion for beauty firmly planted in the excellence of the Burgundy terroir, Édouard Damidot selected and created actives to protect the skin, thus marking the beginning of the VINÉSIME brand.

Bernard BOUVIER – A devoted business partner

Like his family before him, Bernard is a proficient grape grower. The age-old Pinot Noir vines of the René Bouvier estate, produced by different plots and located in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin, give rise every year to exceptional, internationally renowned vintages. His immoderate love for the terroir he works with every day has naturally turned him towards a certified organic viticulture.
