Madame Clicquot – or ‘La Grande Dame de la Champagne,’ as she was fondly known – was widowed at the age of 27, after which she took control of her husband’s company in 1805. She was a businesswoman ahead of her time – shrewd, determined, and one of the first females to lead a company of men. Under her leadership, the business revolutionised the way champagne was produced, inventing a new technique that is still used by all the major champagne labels in the region to this day. It therefore seems fitting that, in her honour, Veuve Clicquot launched the first international award in 1972 to celebrate the achievements of women in business.

This year’s shortlisted candidates were recently revealed as Helena Morrissey (investment company CEO), Anya Hindmarch (designer) and Ruth Rogers (chef and restaurant owner). They represent another inspiring mix of female entrepreneurship, business success, corporate social responsibility and sterling examples as role models.

The winner will visit the Manoir de Verzy where she will have a vine baptised in her name to celebrate her legacy and acknowledge her life long relationship with Veuve Clicquot.
