The Chairman has never laid down the law. Information circulates with nothing to hide and our votes are always the real choices we make; this is a huge difference compared to large organisations and it’s a very positive situation.
This profession has been what I wanted to do since I was young. I was the first woman in the region to drive a tractor and I have always liked to decide and manage. I have never been disheartened and have tackled everything all at once: running the wine estate and looking after my family.
I represent the second generation. My son will soon set up and he will be the third generation. Clairmont progresses as a family and our families move forward with Clairmont. It is both extraordinary and reassuring to say to ourselves that we can count on the young generation just as they can count on us.
These days, it is no longer possible to be satisfied with being approximate. Quality must be everywhere: in our profession, in our wines and in our relations.
I look back on everything at Clairmont since the 1980s, when I was 11 years old. I haven’t forgotten a thing: the first offices, the extensions and the founding group working so hard. We are present more than ever!!
