Damien Barton Sartorius | Honored Guest

Damien Barton Sartorius, Owner and General Manager of Barton Family Wines, is part of the 10th generation in the Barton wine dynasty that began in 1725, when Thomas Barton, a native of Ireland, landed on the quays of Bordeaux. Along with his sister Mélanie Barton Sartorius they are proud to be the next generation of this tight-knit family business.


l’Eté du Vin reception wines are graciously provided by the wineries below


While l’Eté du Vin features outstanding wines during the reception, we do not provide wine during dinner itself. Most of our patrons wish to bring their own cellar favorites to share with their table. We invite you to Bring Your Own Wine for dinner. Volunteers will be on hand to assist in placing your dinner wine on your table during the reception.
