More about today’s guest
Born in 1991, Clara Gentili is the eldest of Elisabetta Geppetti’s five children and has been in the Fattoria Le Pupille’s business since 2011. She entered the business by carrying out simple task sliding down quickly into a learning-by-doing process that got her nowadays, alongside with her mother, to leading winery’s export market and its strategic behaviour in a ever growing global setting. Moreover, she actively participated with her ideas and strong personality from the very beginning at Le Pupille project, a pure Syrah wine, released for the first time in january 2019 and which has already recieved many great scores and reviews from wine critics.
Fluent in English, with a background of Classic, Literature and Huma-nistic studies, while practising her role as Fattoria Le Pupille’s CEO, Cla-ra deals winery’s sales turnover with accuracy but at the same time she is very careful towards the people around her and the eviron-ment issues in general, by creating a great balance between prag-matism and kindness. She enjoys very much travelling, for business but also for pleasure in order to explore and get to know other people, different places, new cultures and of course, new wines, even though she has always kept tight bonds with the land of Maremma and her family.
