Give a chance: herbal medecine


Hundreds of herbal medicinal products will be banned from sale in Europe under what campaigners say is a "discriminatory and disproportionate" European law and  thousands of patients face the loss of herbal remedies that have been used for decades. From 1 May 2011, traditional herbal medicinal products must be licensed or prescribed by a registered herbal practitioner to comply with an EU directive passed in 2004. The directive was introduced in response to rising concern over adverse effects caused by herbal medicines. Read more about it and if you also feel that this is to much !! sign the petition

Harvest time for the schools of Senegal

A happy team gathered together at the and of October to pick the gewurztraminer late-harvest grapes in the domain ofClément Klur. Peole from the area as well as Sweden, specficially our great harvester Sophia Britt. Everyone was ready to help the charity AKA, and found themselves transformed into a real Bacchus. The meal at the end of the harvest was well hydrated to say the least !! We're hoping to do the same next year with some traditional Senegalise dishes such as chicken yassa............. inscriptions are open!!!


Alsace Senegal evening for Christmas time

Every year a few alsatian wine estates propose an interesting program during the time before christmas. At Vignoble Klur we choose one or 2 local associations each year for benefit actions. The AKA who is helping school in Senegal started the 2010 event with a nice evening around the open fire place and the wellknown story tellers Gérard Leser and Marie Barthélemy welcomed Sophie Perret. Stories about friendship and help, alsatian and african traditions, a lot of cookies and wines....and a very nice time. Sophie promissed us that she will continue the story of her life next year.
