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 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.
I care to participate to the évolution of relations between winemakers and other players of the industry. Today, our collective depicts close relationships and mutual respect, two principles that I try to implement with my employees, partners and suppliers on a daily basis.
Passion is to be shared and passed on to ! I am pleased to welcome my two daughters, one after the other, and watch them commit to Vignobles Gabriel & Co’s adventure. Just like me 35 years sooner, Carole and Pauline have chosen to perpetuate the family story and care to reinvent the future of Bordeaux production and distribution. Today, we lead our collective and staff peacefully towards tomorrow’s issues, everyone doing his part.
When I started studying spatial design, I was far from imagining that I would join the family business… Yet, that’s what happened ! I soon realised that the field of spatial design did not suit my personality and that it lacked a human and tangible dimension. After a season working for Vignobles Gabriel & Co, I had made my decision to change career paths. I then practiced for 10 years as Sales Administration and Logistics Manager.
Those years made me reach both personal and professional fulfillment and led me to consider more strategic and organisational topics for the family business.
As the actual Managing Director of Operations I provide for a smooth running of the activity, its sustainability, its continuous improvement, for our staff’s well-being and for cohesion within the collective : winemakers and employees.
Growing up, I gained professional experience in my family wine-growing holding. It became a true passion that allows me to combine work and other hobbies of mine: gastronomy, family time, friends and savoir-faire heritage. Today, I am proud to be vine and wine manager myself of three beautiful estates: Château le Grand Moulin, Château les Aubiers and Châteaux Haut Sociondo.
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.
Although I grew up in Paris suburban area, far from wine activity, I had an epiphany about this industry as I turned 20: I had to have it for a career and so I have done. Simultaneously, it became clear to me that supplies were the right path for me: it was all mapped. Today, my journey got me to Vignobles Gabriel & Co for, hopefully, a happy and lovely adventure.
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.
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!
After business studies, I always came to work for companies in the wine industry. Young and dynamic, I am honoured to work for Vignobles Gabriel & Co since 2018. This family company listens to its partners and shares values I hold dear : quality, respect and rigour. Today as Merchandising Manager, I am proud to promote Vignobles Gabriel & Co’s wines by supporting samples shipping and tastings planning !
I grew up in the Côtes de Blaye region and naturally engaged in wine international business studies that I strengthened aoon after with vinification experiences in France and abroad.
Today, Vignobles Gabriel & Co gives me the opportunity to take up an exciting position with responsibilities combining mangement, business and simultaneously wine, winemakers and the bottling team.
I am proud to contribute to the collective where the winemaker’s work is recognised and valued.
After multiple experiences in bottling, I had the opportunity to enter Vignobles Gabriel & Co’s team as a handler in the packaging warehouse.
Thanks to previous professional experiences, I then joined the bottling team where the company learned to trust me.
Today, I am group leader. This evolution within the team allowed me to learn more every day about the profession.
