Our father stayed close to us while leaving us a lot of autonomy. Of course, he taught us the logic of his profession, but there was no conflict between generations. When we wanted to try out new methods, he left us free to decide, saying: “I used to do it differently, but go ahead, try something else.”
Clairmont offers us the possibility of having feedback from experience which helps us a great deal. We have received technical support that has changed everything. These days, when something niggles at me, without hesitation I’ll make a phone call or go and see what’s happening in the vineyard of friends who are also part-ners. We have absolute trust in each other!
Enhance our plots, draw the range towards higher quality, have projects: all of this keeps us alert and forces us to reassess our methods. Today, our human-scale business and cooperative spirit really make the differ-ence. Being close to one another and taking part in decision-making are the best ways to make progress.
