Join the Alliance Française and Greg Moore, founder of Moore Brothers, for a talk and a wine tasting. Five wines, including one sparkling wine, two whites, and two reds. Greg Moore will talk about how modern systems of food distribution have contributed to the degradation of agricultural communities in France, and how, if we really love France, we should be concerned about protecting its rural heritage by supporting those who are its best stewards, and perhaps understanding that there are unintended consequences if we don't.
