Crisis and Morale

The wine-producing world is in crisis… that’s what all the professionals in the sector are saying and predicting – well, maybe not quite all. There are still people whose morale cannot be dented, who are fully aware of the stakes in our globalized world, but who clear-sightedly keep hold of an almost contagious optimism. Let’s not forget that it is this “come hell or high water” spirit that has enabled us, at the tragic moments of our personal histories and on the scale of our humanity, to face the possibility of our ship sinking and avoid it, even if the event was heralded long ago by the scientific oracle, the flight of the birds, consulting the dead, the entrails of the voodoo cockerel, the Marseille tarot, the dregs of a Turkish coffee, Roman knucklebones, or the lines of someone’s palm.
