In 1981, Bruno Paillard founded the first new Champagne House in almost a century. 35 years later, the company continues realize the vision set forth by its founder. Alice Paillard joined her father in this endeavor in 2007, and now co-manages the firm. We spoke to Alice in December to get an inside look at Maison Bruno Paillard.
Q: What inspired you to join Maison Bruno Paillard?
It started with my great attachment to the region, to Champagne. My family is very deeply rooted here. I felt it was extremely important for me to travel as soon as I could, and explore different places and cultures…because I needed these experiences to realize that I belonged in Champagne ! Then of course the notion of inspiration is a dynamic one : Maison Bruno Paillard has accomplished so much already, and yet it still has such a wonderful path to travel in the future, so the project itself is very fullfilling and continues to inspire me.
