Welcome to episode 1 of our new show, The Responsibilities Series, where we explore the specific responsibilities of those who work with fine wine. We believe that fine wine can no longer be defined solely by its taste or its complexity, but also by its leadership, values and ethos. And if fine wine sits at the top of the pyramid, we need to reflect on the individual and collective responsibilities of sitting at the top.
This very special series has been possible thanks to the support of Moët Hennessy and their program Living Soils, Living Together.
Today’s episode is called “Soil Health” and delves into the new soil mandate that is being drafted for June 7th and the issues around soil health in Europe as well as some of the solutions being proposed to mitigate and even reverse the damage to this precious and finite resource.
The hosts of this podcast are Pauline Vicard, CEO, and Felicity Carter, Editorial Director.
You will hear experts such as Virginijus Sinkevicius, the European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Faustine Bas-Defossez, the Director for Nature, Health and Environment at the European Environmental Bureau, and Sandrine Sommer, the Head of Sustainability for Moet Hennessy express their thoughts and warnings, as well as put forward new initiatives in their efforts to help the current state of affairs when it comes to our soil’s health.
