Alexis Lichine was a Russian-born wine writer, salesman, and producer who played an important part in the expansion of the wine market in the United States. In the 1930s, he was hired by Frank Schoonmaker and together, they promoted the selling of Californian wines by varietal.
After World War 2, Alexis Lichine left Frank Schoonmaker’s company and begin to both import and export wine. It was in 1951 that he both published his first book Wines of France and purchased Chateau Le Prieuré in the commune of Cantenac in Bordeaux.
