Vignerons Indépendants de l'Aude - Assemblée Générale 2010

I attended the general assembly of indie winemakers for the departement de l’Aude. It was okay. They’re in good financial shape and they get a lot done for indie winemakers. And these speeches seem to indicate that everybody wants more wine projects like Love That Languedoc. So that’s good! I’ve started talking to their commercial office about urging winemakers to participate. We’ll see how that goes.

Here’s a video of Anne-Marie Charvet, Prefect of Aude, starting the assembly:

And a video of the National Director of the Vignerons Indépendants:

Roland Courteau, Senator of Aude, speaks about the anti-wine lobby in Paris:

The DDTM (Direction Départementale des Territoires et de la Mer) did the closing speech which proved to be just a bit too long for me to capture.  These guys had way more batteries than my poor little Flip.
