A dedicated team
If the story of Vignobles Gabriel & Co is such a success, it’s thanks to a receptive and devoted team with a thorough knowledge of all administrative functions. They enable the men and women in the field to exercise their professions in the best possible conditions in the vineyard and the warehouse. Together they form one big family, and all contribute to the excellence of Vignobles Gabriel & Co.
I was still a teenager when I discovered the rich winemaking past of the family farm and the role played by my great-great-grandfather, Gabriel. I decided to follow in his footsteps, and took the same path by studying winemaking. Since then, my passion for wines from independent winegrowers has continued to flourish, and with it, a thirst for authenticity, solidarity and sincerity. It is thanks to this that Vignobles Gabriel & Co exists.
When I started studying spatial design I was far from imagining that I would join the family business… But that’s what happened! I soon realised that the field of spatial design wasn’t suited to my personality and that it lacked a human side. After a season with Vignobles Gabriel & Co I had made my decision to change career paths; I’m now Sales Administration and Logistics Manager, and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.
After 20 years spent in the public transport sector as Senior Accounting Officer, I decided to give my career new momentum by joining a family-run business with values of mutual support and trust: Vignobles Gabriel & Co. Dynamic, persevering and committed, I joined the team as Administration and Finance Manager. This big family enables me to rise to new challenges every day.
I’ve always made it a matter of principle to give human relations a central place in my career. I like sharing and authenticity in professional dialogue. Vignoble Gabriel & Co is a perfect example of this ! As Warehouse Manager, I’m lucky enough to be able to combine human resources duties with administrative tasks in line with my secretarial studies, in the environment that I grew up in.
From a very early age I earned my spurs on a family estate. It’s a true vocation, and for me it’s also an opportunity to combine my profession with my other passions : good food, meals with family and friends, and passing on expertise. Today, I’m proud to be operations manager for three superb châteaux: Château le Grand Moulin, Château les Aubiers and Château Haut Sociondo.
Over the seven years I’ve been with Vignobles Gabriel & Co in various positions, I’ve grown in stature both professionally and personally. I started as accountant, then sample preparer and logistics assistant, and I am now purchasing manager. My independence and versatility have made it easy for me to forge links with the winegrowers.
After starting my career in a sales capacity I soon realised that my real driving force was wine. I went back to college to specialise in oenology, and today make my living from my passion. My life is spent between managing the family farm in Charente-Maritime and Vignobles Gabriel & Co., where I’m technical manager. It’s hard work but a lot of fun, for which I constantly go the extra mile.
I’m a people person with a background in figures. After 10 years in the large retail sector, during which I was in contact with countless numbers of people, I resumed my accounting studies to take a Baccalauréat Professionnel vocational diploma, 12 years after my initial accounting diploma. After passing the Baccalauréat I joined Vignobles Gabriel & Co, and I’m delighted to have been part of this big family ever since!
With roots in Bordeaux and in Médoc, I was naturally nurtured on the good things in life and good wine. I studied communication in Bordeaux before moving to Morocco for a year, where my mind was opened to another culture. On my return I joined the large retail sector, in which teamwork and responsiveness are primordial. Thanks to these experiences and my boundless optimism, I easily became part of the team at Vignobles Gabriel & Co.
I grew up on my father’s farm in Charente-Maritime, so I was nurtured by agricultural and family values. After spending over 10 years in Paris as a dental prosthetist, I wanted to return to my home ground and set myself new goals. For me, Vignobles Gabriel & Co represents a professional challenge, with sweet memories of the grape harvests of my childhood as a backdrop.
