What an inspiring evening at yesterday’s Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award 2022 and the Future Award 2022 at the Aura in Zurich, Switzerland.
Veuve Clicquot has given away the Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award 2022 for the 17th time since the Swiss premiere in 1985. In addition, the Veuve Clicquot Bold Future Award was presented in Switzerland for the second time in 2022.
Veuve Clicquot’s own history actually started with a BOLD woman. It’s a story of courage, creativity and entrepreneurship. In 1805, Madame Clicquot (at age 28!) took over the running of the house after her husband’s death – at a time when women were not allowed to work or hold bank accounts. Over the years, Madame Clicquot upended the industry. The shaking table that produces crystal-clear champagne? That was her innovation. The first known vintage champagne? That, too, was her creation. The first blended rosé champagne? She was the clever mind behind it. Madame Clicquot had to deal with numerous obstacles before she was finally respected and called the Grande Dame of Champagne. The name is all too fitting: this bold woman had big dreams that her house would transcend borders: “I want my brand to be number one in New York as in Saint Petersburg.” (Madame Clicquot, 1831). https://www.veuveclicquot.com/de-int/bold-by-veuve-clicquot/about
