The Oddbins Take

They say the second mouse gets the cheese. Well, that's certainly the case for winemaker Gasnier. Unfortunately, though, he was the first mouse. Working closely with the land for so long, he'd come to realise how vitally everything was linked. It wasn't just living things that interacted one with the other, but inert material also had a part to play in the greater whole.


With this in mind, he endeavoured to ensure his vineyards were in balance; organisms and inorganic matter in a self-regulating, synergistic system. He explained this to a group of visitors one warm afternoon, and maybe it's just coincidence. But a scientist amongst that group later came up with the theory the world worked because everything was linked. Perhaps he wasn't even aware where he'd heard the idea first, but "Gaia" sounds suspiciously like he'd misremembered the name of the man who'd at least seeded the hypothesis.
