Vines and People

Screenings and tasting sessions

Every month, La Cité du Vin invites visitors to the auditorium for a presentation and screening of a short film (26 minutes) on a wine region from the documentary series Des Vignes et des Hommes (Vines and People), co-produced by Grand Angle Production, La Fondation pour la Culture et les Civilisations du Vin and ARTE France.

The session is presented by Henry Clemens and Véronique Lemoine, co-authors of the publication Des Vignes et des Hommes - When Vines shape the Landscape.

The screening is followed by a tasting of two wines, led by the sommelier of La Cité du Vin.

The evening continues with an Accord Parfait (Perfect Match) dinner at the Tables Vatel restaurant.
