Switzerland: Lavaux, fortress vines
Once a month, this event invites you to explore an episode from the Des Vignes et Des Hommes (Vines and People) documentary series co-produced by Grand Angle Productions, the Fondation pour la Culture et les Civilisations du Vin and Arte France. The presentation and documentary screening will be followed by a tasting of two wines with a La Cité du Vin sommelier.
In this evening’s screening of the documentary Suisse : Lavaux, les vignes forteresses (Switzerland: Lavaux, fortress vines) by Vincent PERAZIO (colour, 26’, English with French subtitles), you will discover the incomparable wine landscape that can be found alongside Lake Geneva. Discover how for more than 23 generations, many families working here have had to learn how to conquer this geography and domesticate nature.
The presentation and documentary screening will be followed by a tasting of two wines with a La Cité du Vin sommelier.
With: Henry Clemens, wine columnist, editor in chief of cultural magazine Junkpage and co-author of the book ‘Des Vignes et des Hommes. Quand la Vigne Sculpte le Paysage’.
