Thomas Duhameau has been speaking French for most of his life, except a couple years during which he didn't speak much at all. Despite his great fondness for the language of Molière and Audiard, he also enjoys studying other languages, including in chronological order, German, Latin, Greek, English, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Hindi, Xhosa and Japanese, with extremely varied degrees of success.
Thomas is a diplômé de l'ESSEC in France, and a Dipl.-Kaufmann der Universität von Mannheim in Germany. He's lived with his wonderful wife in South Africa, on both coasts of the US, and in Hawaii. He's been active for nearly two decades in the California wine industry, most recently as President of Hahn Family Wines.
