Our local team
Clos Henri Winemaker and Operational Chief Executive, Damien is the face of Clos Henri in Marlborough. Together with the Bourgeois family, Damien brought the best of his French winemaking heritage to New Zealand to be the on-site winemaker of Clos Henri. His passion, enthusiasm and attention to detail install great dedication and commitment from his successful young team.
Chrissie is Clos Henri’s Manager of Administration and Human Resources. She gets the right people into the right positions and is responsible for office management. Chrissie has been with Clos Henri almost from the very beginning and knows everything there is to know about the estate.
Fabiano is our Vineyard Manager. He is a man of the land. Having a unique sense for winegrowing and an intimate relationship with nature, he passionately embraces and consistently improves Clos Henri’s organic and biodynamics practices. Being fluent in Italian, French, Spanish and English, he’s the gel that holds the vineyard team together to ensure that every hand working in the vineyard brings the most beautiful fruit. His days are typically spent out in the field and he’s certainly not afraid to be out there, leading the team, in some of the hardest climatic conditions.
Clos Henri’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Naomi is the first point of call for orders and marketing initiatives around Clos Henri. She manages the tasting room, customer experiences and media visits on the estate and particularly loves telling the intimate story of Clos Henri with its deep French roots.
