Friday, August 27, Delphine Batho, MP, candidate for the primary of environmentalists, goes to Gironde for a trip devoted to the consequences of climate change for viticulture and the development of organic viticulture.
In 2021, viticulture should lose between 24% and 30% of its production. In question, the episode of late frost in April after heat records, followed by a rainy summer. The consequences are heavy for the sector in a department which has nearly 10,000 wine-growing operations. In addition to the challenges of adapting to climate change, there are changes linked to society’s expectations to phase out pesticides and develop organic products, which are good for health and good for biodiversity.
Delphine Batho will go to the Climax Festival in the afternoon, the 7th edition of which is dedicated to Africa “cradle of the future”, to highlight the initiatives of the African continent, on the front line in the face of global warming, collapse of biodiversity and plunder of resources.
9.45am – 10.15am Château de Sauvage in Landiras: meeting with a winegrower converted to organic since 2017.
12h00 – 13h00 Interprofessional Wine Council in Bordeaux: discussions with Bernard Farges, President of the CIVB on the challenges of adapting Bordeaux wine production on adaptation to global warming and organic development.
2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Darwin: meetings with the initiators and participants of the Climax Festival.
