your personal wine ambassador

Renee Hanson

Boisset Collection Luxury Wine Ambassador - Fine Wine Shop & Community

My passions are wine, fashion, travel and food with as much physical exercise on the side as possible. I have traveled all over Europe and the US sipping and tasting my way, creating memories and making friends. Three years ago I was in Napa/Sonoma on a trip I had taken several times. This time I added the Wine Train to our activity list and ended up at Raymond Vineyards on our second stop. This was my first time to Raymond and I wasn't preparred for the experience. From the beautiful organic gardens, Luxurious bar, Red velvet tasting room to the manequin studded tiger stuffed modern production area I was energized. Mid tour, a tall handsome dimple cheeked light haired man with hot pink socks quickly approached our group. In a french accent he complimented my dress and asked if we were having a good time. We had no idea that we were talking to the man himself, Jean-Charles Boisset. He popped up serveral times that day and interacted with everyone as if we were all guests in his home. The next day we were on bikes and made it to the gates of Buena Vista Vineyard for our last tasting of the day. I had been here before and had heard that Jean-Charles also had aquired this beautiful property. You can smell the history inside those stone walls and the wine is unforgettable. Just after 6pm we were hopping on our bikes in the sun filled courtyard when a voice from behind told me to get off my bike. My competative spirit was set to race everyone down the hill, but my friends insisted I turn around. My then boyfriend was down on one knee with a glittering ring outstretched in his hand. Utterly surprised and almost speachless aside from the word YES I was engaged to the love of my life with a champagne toast graciously supplied by the Count. Both Raymond and Buena Vista are part of my story and I couldn't imagine representing anyone other than the JCB Collection. 

When I grow up my dream is to be a sommelier and own a hobby vineyard in the Pacific Northwest with a view of the Cascades. For now to support my passions I am a top producing Realtor in Northeast Florida helping to move my buyers and sellers forward. My background of 25 years in interior and graphic design has been a strong foundation for my real estate success. I am the creator/designer of which has made 2020 one of my most inspired years to date. My husband and I have five children, one massive west German long coat shepherd named Gatsby and a beautiful snow bengal kitty cat named Lynx. We live on a lake that connects to the St Johns river and we are less than an hour from the beach. We have the most amazing friends that will all need to move with us to wine country one day or it will break my heart. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit from this story. Maybe one day we will meet in person over a glass of wine. Cheers!
