While there are more than 3,000 wine producers in France, less than 3% of them use natural methods of wine production. For ethical reasons, this small community has chosen environmentally friendly practices, aimed at finding the natural expression of terroir and the living character of the wine. Director Bruno Sauvard followed this revolution in the South of France over the course of a year, from the harvest to the bottling, revealing a global movement for organic taste and sustainability.
This Irish Premiere screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring director Bruno Sauvard, award-winning journalist Catherine Cleary, Pamela Walsh of Wicklow Way Wines, and environmental scientist Dr. Cara Augustenborg . The debate will explore the challenging ecological balances of our time in the global context of biodiversity loss as a result of climate change.
The event will also be followed by a special French biodynamic wine reception in the foyer, courtesy of O’Briens Wine Beer Spirits.
