Béatrice Cointreau

Admirable Family Vineyards (Winemaker and Owner)

Béatrice Cointreau is part of a long line of winemakers and distillers. As the great granddaughter of the founder of Cointreau liquor and the granddaughter of the founder of Rémy Martin, she takes pride in carrying forward their values of entrepreneurship without working for either of those historical firms.

Her extensive educational background reflects her passion for the luxury businesses associated with wine, liquor, and gastronomy. Thus, she has earned diplomas in Perfume Preparation and Wine Tasting from ISIPCA-Versailles and Talence-Bordeaux, respectively, and Master’s degrees in Business Administration and Private and Commercial Law from Cornell University and Paris II University– Panthéon Assas, respectively.

In 2013 she founded Admirable Family Vineyards, a boutique winery in Malibu. The first release of her varietals, which include white and red blends, occurred in Fall, 2015. Béatrice moved to Los Angeles to be close to her two sons, but remains involved in businesses in France. She soon realized that Malibu possessed Provence-like terroir, which motivated her to start her winery.

A member of the Wine Academy of France, among other organizations, she is also author of “Organic wine: the marketer’s guide.” When the multitude of her professional activities permit, Béatrice can be found enjoying a number of sports, which include sailing, riding, golfing, fencing, surfing, and skiing.
