Association ESC'prit d'Aventure: oenology, fair trade and sustainable development in Argentina


11 students went on tour from May 3rd – 24th 2010 to make a documentary film on these subjects

After Romania, Argentina! In the second year of its existence, the student association of ESC'prit d'Aventure chose South America as its destination of choice for their sociological and ecological wanderings. Between the 3rd and 24th of May, eleven students went to the area of Mendoza to learn about this wine producing region's producers and fair trade systems.

The team of students had two principal goals: create a documentary of the road trip with an investigation into wine production and sustainable development, and upon return to France, promote Argentine wines that come from fair trade businesses or organic producers.

Thierry Bièvre, the organizer of the project Tour Elithis in Dijon and General Manager of Groupe Elithis Ingénierie, is the sponsor of this year's "ESC'prit d'Aventure". Many other businesses are among the sponsors of this program as well.
