The narrator is Jean-Michel Gremillet:
“See, little one, one day we’ll put a wall around this vineyard!
-Why a wall?
It makes such wonderful grapes and delicious wine, so I want to protect it.
-Protect it from wolves, grandpa?
Oh no, not wolves, little one, there aren’t any, not anymore.
-Is it to protect it from fairies then?
No, little one, the fairies will come, so will the bees and birds. What I want is to make it a haven, like an oasis or the Garden of Eden…
-With Adam and Eve?
Exactly – in fact I think they’re already there! You see, I’d like to put a wall around it, not to close it off but to open it up… The key will stay in the door for anyone who wants to come in. I want this wall to stand for love, like a necklace you put around the collar of someone you love.”
A wall, a haven, an act of love: this is what Jean-Michel Gremillet has made of his vineyard which makes such beautiful grapes and such fine champagne.
