Widely recognized as the oldest and largest international gastronomic society in the world, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs has professional and amateur members in more than 90 countries worldwide. Founded in Paris in 1248, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is devoted to preserving the camaraderie and pleasures of the table and to promote excellence in hospitality. Each year the society sponsors young chef and sommelier competitions, while the Chaîne Foundation provides scholarships for students in these fields.

Now in its 56th year in the United States, roughly 6,000 gourmands, chefs, wine professionals, food and wine educators, and hoteliers are part of the nearly 130 bailliages, or chapters, in the U.S. – each offering a variety of culinary activities and events designed to bring the best of food and wine to local members.

The Central Coast chapter of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs was first established in 2000 by Justin Baldwin of JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, who served as the Bailli from September 2000 to September 2012. Following him as Bailli was Daniel Daou of DAOU Vineyards & Winery, who headed the chapter from 2012 to 2014. Adds Humphrey, “I’m honored to restore the Central Coast bailliage of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and look forward to bringing together the best in food and wine that our region has to offer.”

A seasoned veteran of the luxury hospitality industry, Humphrey brings more than 30 years of experience to his role at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, having led the culinary programs of some of the nation’s most prestigious resorts and hotels.

“The Allegretto is officially one of the best luxury wine country destinations in the world – a world class resort paired with world-class wine,” says Humphrey. “As one of the top gourmet dining destinations on the Central Coast, our goal at the Allegretto is to always be pushing the boundaries of culinary greatness, but advancing culturally, as well. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to assist with several Chaîne des Rôtisseurs events and hold them to the highest regard. It only made sense to bring back this wine gastronomy society to our area, to further offer educational and immersive wine and food experiences to our community.”
