Industrial agriculture would have us believe that organic certification is meaningless. These are some of the talking points they have fed us. Because in Champagne, France’s first and most storied AOC, industrial agriculture can’t afford the risk that people think otherwise — that we wake up and ask what’s actually in our glass. It would seem they’re winning. Only 3% of grapes in Champagne are grown organically. Less than half a percent are grown biodynamically. Yet there’s a resistance brewing. In GLOU GLOU CHAMPAGNE Vol. 1, twelve pioneers of organic viticulture will lead you through their fight to reclaim Champagne as a wine of terroir. They’re a spunky lot who will disarm you with their defiance in the face of staggering odds.
