Fighting climate change and adapting to our warming planet has been a priority for the growers and producers in Champagne, France for the last 20 years. Their high level of quality and distinct style depends on them staying ahead of the curve. The Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC) - the organization that represents Champagne production - has been leading the way in sustainability efforts for much of the world. Thibaut Le Mailloux, the CIVC's Communications Director, sat down with my from his home in France, to discuss life during quarantine, how wine growers are adapting to climate change, and the aggressive sustainability plans in place for the Champagne region.
