La Clef des terroirs
From the vineyard to the corking of the bottle, making wine is a craft in which each detail counts. The world of wine has experienced early the sensation of losing contact with the earth. To get the best from the grapes, winemakers increasingly apply the practices of biodynamics. This method of biodynamic agriculture is to think in complex agricultural organizations in the presence of animals and cultures, in total harmony nature.

Though still fairly unknown in Europe, Toussaint Louverture was the first great Black leader, prior to Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.
Born a slave in the French settlement of San Domingo - present-day Haiti - Louverture had an extraordinary career, becoming General of the French army and eventually the Governor of the colony. Opposing Napoleon, wishing to reestablish slavery, he died in 1803; a prisoner of a French Jura fortress.
Quebec, Canada. At the summer solstice, a group of young Aboriginals from the Innu and Huron nations and young Quebecers travels the Jesuits’ ancestral trail, 310 km of land and water which links Lac Saint-Jean and Quebec City. Some embark on this 21-day long adventure to follow their ancestors’ trail, others for a unique experience with nature or as a personal challenge. One thing is certain; from laughter to silence, with stories and moments of introspection, a simple encounter turns into a profound learning experience.
The magnificent lagoon of Mayotte, an island in the Indian Ocean, is at the very heart of local life. The Mahorans are aware of this and try to protect it. From the wooded mountain top to the mangrove and into the sea, we came across dedicated men, women and children, turtles and sea cucumbers, right down to the vibrant coral reefs shimmering below in the turquoise water.
The lagoon of Mayotte is a cradle of hope : to build a future that will be environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
