Laure Levesque

Founder  | Queen of Wines

A French native, Laure was fortunate enough to grow up in a family strongly connected to wine, with vineyards in several wine regions in France, and for whom wine truly defines a way of life. After a 20-year career in the corporate world as an international marketing executive, Laure decided to create Durham-based Queen Of Wines LLC out of passion – and with the mission to connect winemakers from smaller family-owned estates in France with wine lovers in the U.S.

She started to source, import and distribute a curated selection of “gem wines” from a variety of terroirs and appellations. She also designed a very unique back label, giving direct and easy access to all relevant information about each wine, which makes each glass of wine much more memorable and enjoyable. Laure and her team are dedicated to expanding wine lovers’ palates and she invites them on a personable journey to the heart of French vineyards.
