The Saint-Emilion Ban des Vendanges is a major ceremony in the life of the Saint-Emilion wine community. Its continuation is a revisited time-honoured tradition. In times gone by, experts were sent in advance into the vines to ensure that the grapes were perfectly ripe, and thus guarantee the excellence of the crop. Today the Ban des Vendanges links the past with the future. It is also an occasion for the celebration of the vintage being harvested.

They exchanged views on such subjects as sustainability, agroforestry, the protection of ancestral cultures and the defence of populations. The encounter and the warm, informal discussion were introduced by Philippe Barre, the founder of the Climax festival, which was dedicated this year to the topic of deforestation and the defence of indigenous peoples.
