The 4th edition of the Printemps de Pomerol festival opens today. Created by the commune of Pomerol near Bordeaux and its viticultural trade association, this weekend will be all about good wine and photography.
“This event has a meaning and a history,” said artistic director Dominique Vayron. “The program is highly concentrated, intense, very powerful. We demand quality without being elitist. And we are at the heart of the creative process: making art and making wine both require an attentive eye.”
The two-day festival will feature projections of images, exhibitions and master classes in the local schools. Among the guests this year are the photographer Françoise Huguier, Philipe Lopparelli (member of the collective Tendance Floue), Guillaume Binet (member of the Myop agency), Brigitte Ollier (from the newspaper Libération) and Nathalie Lopparelli (founder of the studio Fenêtre sur cour).
