This week I'm joined by Thibaut Le Mailloux, Communications Director for the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC) -- the Council that oversees the communications, grower relations and research and development for the Champagne region (www.champagne.com)
Your mind will be blown by some of the new things that are going on in Champagne to challenge climate change, especially. There are things in this podcast that I didn't know were going on, information about business issues and terroir that were fascinating. One of the most interesting conversations I've had the pleasure of having in a while.
Here are the show notes:
Then we talk about the region...
Then we talk business!
Finally, we discuss the future of the region (beyond the big, surprising ideas of R&D that we cover earlier).

Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty goal: to create boutique-quality eyewear at a revolutionary price point.
A collaboration between four close friends, Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and blandeyewear available today. Prescription eyewear shouldn’t cost you more than a plane ticket or a new iPhone. Bycircumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through their website and retail stores, Warby Parker is able to provide high-quality, good-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the price.
The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage-inspired with a contemporary twist. Every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.
Available exclusively through Warby Parker’s website and retail stores, glasses start at $95 (for real! I have been a customer for years!), including prescription lenses.
