Babel is an important movie for Laura, the wife of Paulo.

The vineyard where the Babel grapes were harvested is an old vineyard with various cépages (Grenache Blanc and Gris, Macabeu, Carignan, Clairette, Grenache noir). Those cépages are like different languages which cohabit on the same place.
In the Babel tower story, the languages are scattered all around the world, so it’s like those vines.
