Christian Bouteiller

Executive Chairman

Chris Boutellier

A native of the Loire Valley, Chris came to Scotland in November 1980 having completed a business degree in France.

Six months later, he naturally settled into a role selling wine to private/ corporate clients but soon realised that there was potential to set up an on-trade business.

In 1984, he joined forces with Jonathan Kennett, our non executive director, to form the Alliance Wine Company - and the rest is history!

Chris still maintains a loyal band of customers but naturally spends much of his time involved in the general running and development of the company.

Chris's passion and energy spent building the business continues but he does now find the time to take more holidays, go skiing, tour the world and soak up the sun.

And for fitness, he enjoys regular running, with the occasional half marathon to challenge him!
