"To take wine into our mouths is to savor a droplet of human history" - Clifton Fadiman.  


About Becky Wasserman Co: Our company exports wines from small domaines and shippers in Burgundy and other regions who honor their terroirs. We do not endorse any single method of vinification or an “ideal” type of wine. Our international team, based in Beaune, is comprised of thirteen people, including sales and administration (plus two office cats). We lunch together at the office each day.
