There is a tradition at Palmer that our savoir-faire and experience be shared with students from a wide variety of nationalities.
Noé PIERRON, a student in BTS at the CFPPA in Blanquefort, has been an intern here since early October. He is in charge of the important task of following vinifications for the 2009 vintage. We got to know him earlier this summer during his viticulture internship when he showed our vineyard boss just how motivated and serious he is!
Originally from Vannes, Brittany, he worked for many years in the business. It is for the love of wine and soil that he decided to change professions. And to do so he chose to come to Bordeaux and Chateau Palmer, which is for him, one of the jewels of the Medoc!
Gaetano D'AFFLITTO is studying oenology at the University of Florence in Italy. As the son of a wine producer, his internship at Chateau Palmer will last for two months. Cheerful and motivated, he's helping with pumping-over, alongside the permanent employees at the chateau, as is his compatriot Benedetta.
Benedetta MUSSI is a young Italian that is also studying oenology, at the University of Pisa. Benedetta immediately charmed us with her determination and her experience. On the pumping-over team, she's distinguished herself by her savoir-faire and her swiftness.
