Since a few years, Loire Valley winemakers reinvent winemaking and wine growing. Departing from cultural heritage that flooded vineyards with chemical, they, they refuse also in their cellar any enological products such as sugar, enzymes, artificial yeasts....
Through their craft work, which is both going back to their roots but also a revolution, they give a meaning and passion to their work. Natural wine, drink real alliance, reflecting the terroir and human being, is not only healthy but good for our planet... especially when enjoyed moderately!

The screening will be followed by a debate with the film director
