Discover the vines and wines of the association Clinamen, take part in a workshop on the growing techniques in the vineyards and finish off with a wine tasting session.
The association Clinamen aims to dynamise urban territories by focusing on the promotion of farming practices. It owns sheep flocks in two sheepfolds : one in the departmental park Georges Valbon of La Courneuve and the other on unused land in the grounds of Villetaneuse University.
In 2015 Clinamen planted a vine garden over one hectare in the grounds of Villetaneuse University . The latter is built on the former orchards of the « Plaine des Vertus ». This experimental garden is sponsored by distinguished natural and organic winegrowers (Patrick Desplat, Olivier Cousins, Eric Dubois...).
This visit led by the Clinamen team is the occasion to learn about the historical viticultural and garden products heritage of Plaine des Vertus, the history of vineyards in the Ile de France region and the viticultural challenges of today. It is the occasion to observe an original project around this garden : 1h of gardening = 1 LU (Légume Usufruit) = leave with a percentage of crop!
You will discover the different spaces and techniques : the vine and tree nursery essential for the biodiversity of the vine; planting hedgegrows to rebuild a natural biodiversity; mulching, ploughing and weeding ; vegetable relay cropping…
After the visit you can take part in a workshop about winegrowing techniques and finish off with a tasting session of natural wines.
Duration of the visit, workshop, tasting : 3h
