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 documentary Canada: wine from the great lakes by Éric Michaud (colour, 26’, English with French subtitles), you will discover that in the far west of Canada – beyond the snowy peaks and deep volcanic gorges – lies the Okanangan Valley, a land of contrasts and riches that experiences incredible climatic variations, ranging from 45°C in the summer to -35°C in the winter!


This series is supported by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in partnership with National centre of Cinematography (CNC).

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’.

In partnership with: Canadian Vintners Association
