The story behind the largest vineyard in the Paris region

This week we bring you a special edition of the programme. We focus on wine, which is more than just a drink here in France. Wine is a product of national pride and is part of the nation's heritage. First, we take you to a vineyard on the doorsteps of Paris. Next, we introduce you to different wine methods, from solar vibrations to astrological movements. Finally, we look at the artful architecture of modern vineyards, where not just the wine but the walls also breathe.
