French photographer, author and director, Jean-Yves Bardin has been working for the past 5 years on the vineyards and the vine makers of his beloved Anjou region (Loire Valley).
He has followed 43 gueules (faces) of winemakers, celebrating their dedication and commitment to low intervention farming, it might be organic, biodynamic or natural - Some of them are even still working with horses! Wine growers portrayed in Jean-Bardin’s book are writing a new page for Anjou wines by allowing the “terroir” (the soil) to completely express itself in your glass.
This encounter is followed by a casual wine tasting.
