I’ve had in mind to start a blog for quite a few years now. Things happen here at Carbonneau that I need to put to paper partly to share with those involved, those curious or simply to help me remember them in the future. The launch of the new version of our web site seemed an ideal opportunity.
But before anything else, a word on the web site itself. For a year or so now the children have been badgering me to do something about the rather dated version. What seemed initally to be a rather simple exercise in changing colour, layout and photos has ended up being a major team effort. I confess to knowing very little about the workings of web sites ( and still don’t) but now certainly appreciate the hours it takes to redesign one.
Huge thanks to Hugo who initally whisked my idea onto Powerpoint , to Mahé Neel who graphically got us on track, to Dyu Minh, Jason Boa, Jorg Lehman and David Wickham ( and myself) for the fabulous photos, to Morgane for her painstaking organisation, to Pierre for his vision and wine web site expertise, to Margot and Lucie for their constructive criticism and most of all to Stéphane Bezpalko for his patience and perserverance.
And now for those of you who are meeting us for the first time we’ve posted our Newsletter for 2014. Happy reading.
