Here are the hats that Philippe Lejeune wears:

Winemaker

Chateau owner in Cahors, France

CEO of Galaxy Semiconductors

Alumnus of Teradyne, Inc. in North Reading, MA

Here’s the story that explains, at least a little, his life in business and his life in wine:

Back in the day, when he was a young engineering intern, Lejeune came from France to work at Teradyne. He promptly invented a systems solution for semiconductors — right — then patented it and eventually built two companies, including Galaxy Semiconductors, where he is still CEO. He bought Chateau Chambert in 2006 in the Cahors region of southwestern France, which is the ancestral homeland to the Malbec grape. Lejeune has been making wine ever since alongside Stephane Derenoncourt, one of the most in-demand consulting winemakers in the world today.

Lejeune returns to Boston, his old stomping grounds, this Saturday for two very special wine events.

From 5 to 7pm, he will be pouring his Malbec wines at the Bulthaup Designer Studio on Boylston Street, right across from the Boston Common. Tickets are normally $25 but WGBH members receive a special discount with the code WGBHCAHORS. Click here to purchase your ticket.

At 8pm Lejeune heads over to Sel de la Terre in the Back Bay for an intimate dinner with 12 guests. Email Cathy Huyghe at cathy@well.com if you would like to attend this dinner. Space is limited! Guests can order a la carte or from Sel de la Terre’s Restaurant Week menu, which is $33.10 for three courses.
