Handicap International is an independent charity working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster in over 60 countries worldwide. We work tirelessly alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their basic needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
We repair lives by providing artificial limbs to amputees, including disabled children in education, clearing landmines and unexploded bombs and caring for injured people in the aftermath of a natural disaster. Over the last 30 years, we have changed the lives of millions of disabled and vulnerable people.
Handicap International is co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for its work to ban landmines.
The boutique House of Champagne Perrier-Jouët has been world-renowned for its elegant hand-crafted champagnes since its foundation in 1811.
The iconic Art Nouveau ‘Anemone’ bottle of the brand’s prestige Cuvée Belle Epoque embodies the House style, which is shaped by the purity, mineral-character and refinement of the region’s finest Grand Cru chardonnay grapes from the Côtes des Blancs.
Perrier-Jouët’s longstanding popularity in the UK began in earnest in 1847, when the House pioneered the ‘Brut’ style of champagne specifically to meet the tastes of the British palate.
Le Conseil des Vins de Saint-Emilion
A vivid scarlet robe, a palette of the most subtle aromas, well-balanced and generous on the palate, these are some of the main characteristics of Saint-Emilion wines. However, remember that Saint-Emilion, Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion have many wines. Different estates and vintages produce wines with their own personality; the enjoyment is getting to know them all.Read more
LES VINS DE GRAVES: AOC Graves & Graves Supérieures
The Graves region is the cradle of Bordeaux white and red winesThe Graves wine district starts at the “Jalle de Blanquefort” and ends just after Langon.
The river forms the Easter border of the vineyards while to the west the pine forest of the Landes serves as boundary and protection alike. But the majority of A.O.C. GRAVES wines come from the area extending from La Brède to Langon, encircling the Barsac and the Sauternes appellation area.
LES VINS DE PESSAC-LEOGNAN : AOC Pessac-Léognan
Rigorously selected and controlled by the I.N.A.O, the current production is of the order of 75000 hls with more than 1700 hectares of production or some 10 million bottles (80% Red and 20% dry White). Of this about 20% is exported.
The new A.O.C Pessac-Léognan was born in September 1987 in the very old region of the Graves de Bordeaux, formerly the Banlieue Prévôtale (Provostal Suburb).Cradle of the Bordeaux vineyards, the A.O.C Pessac-Léognan includes 74 Châteaux and Domains split between 10 communes. All located on this exceptional soil, 16 of them, of which the famous Château Haut-Brion, are Classified Vintages of the Graves.
