Étienne Davodeau is a comic book writer, he doesn't know much about the world of wine. Richard Leroy is a winemaker, he has hardly ever read comics.
But these two are full of good will and curiosity. Why does one choose to devote one's life to writing and drawing books or to producing wine? How and for whom do they do it?

For more than a year, to answer these questions, Etienne went to work in the vineyards and in Richard's cellar, who, in turn, immersed himself in the world of comics. They opened many bottles and read many books. They walked around, meeting authors and winemakers who are passionate about their work.

Étienne Davodeau believes that there are as many ways to produce a book as there are to produce wine. He realizes that both have the necessary and precious power to bring human beings together.

This is the joyful tale of a cross initiation that Les Ignorants offers.

The Author:

Étienne Davodeau was born in 1965 and lives in Anjou. In 1985, after studying visual arts in Rennes, and the creation of the Psurde comic studio, he published the trilogy Les Amis de Saltiel with Dargaud, then Le Constat. Then, with Delcourt, Quelques Jours avec un menteur, Le Réflexe de survie, and three thrillers: La Gloire d'Albert, Anticyclone and Ceux qui t'aiment. In 2001 he produced Rural! a real reportage, in which he confirmed his choice - not very frequent in comics - to place the real world at the heart of his work.

He is also interested in children's comics (he wrote the script for Les Aventures de Max & Zoé, drawn by Joub). He realized, with David Prudhomme in the drawing, the adaptation in comic strip of the unique and unknown novel of Georges Brassens, La Tour des miracles. After publishing Chute de vélo in the "Aire Libre" collection (Prix des libraires spécialisés 2005), he returned to reportage-documentary with Les Mauvaises Gens, which received the 2005 Grand Prix de la critique, the Prix France Info, and then the Prix du Scénario and the Prix du Public at Angoulême. Finally, with Kris, he puts in pictures in Un homme est mort (A man died) the workers' demonstrations in Brest in 1950, which won the Prix France Info.
