As the grape harvest season begins, Veuve Clicquot has unveiled “We Are Clicquot”, an online video series that celebrates the diversity of métiers and talents needed to produce the finest champagne.
A stunning portrait gallery, We Are Clicquot focuses the spotlight on the people of the House as they talk about their work, their expertise and the passion that inspires them each day as they contribute to producing an exceptional champagne. The portraits span every aspect of making champagne, from vineyard workers to oenologists and winegrowers, underscoring the amazing diversity of talents at a unique house such as Veuve Clicquot.
The short films present the careers of people who have been with Veuve Clicquot for decades – some of their families for generations. Christian Renard has managed the vineyards since 1982, while Marie-Pascale is a custom labeling artisan who makes exceptional bottles unique, hand-decorating them with leather, gold leaf or other exceptional materials. They and the others in the portraits are the heirs to artisanal savoir-faire passed on for generations.
