Sustainable Bordeaux

Bordeaux's Green Revolution
With Romana Echensperger MW
Dec 14 2021

Summary:

The city of Bordeaux has recently been governed by a green mayor, more than 14,000 hectares of vineyards are certified organic or are being converted, and biodynamics is experiencing great popularity.

In the Gironde region, too, it has been realized, not least after various pesticide scandals, that neither people nor the environment can be poisoned for a luxury product like wine. In this webinar, we want to get to the bottom of the efforts for more sustainability in Bordeaux.

We want to look at what the big challenges facing the region are and what solutions exist. We will also present different winemakers and their ideas for a sustainable future.
