Edouard has been a part of the wine business since an early age as his family-owned brand Champagne Duval-Leroy has a history of more than 150 years. After completing his OIV Master of Science in Wine Management degree in 2002, which allowed him to meet wine producers from all around the world, Edouard founded East Meets West Fine Wines with his best friend Gregory Bielot, which quickly became a major wine importer and distributor in the Greater China wine market.
