France Culture - In Eco Veritas

Two extracts from Vitis prohibita in the program In eco veritas (1/4) Wine market: conquering the world from September 23, 2019:

Tomorrow, head to Roman Gaul in the first century BC at a time when wine was flowing freely. On Wednesday, we will follow the seasonal workers in the vineyard, pruning shears in hand, and finally on Thursday, it is the wine tourism business that will interest us.
