What you'll learn in this wine class:

During World War II the Nazis took control of France and began to systematically plunder the cellars of France’s most revered wine regions; Champagne, Burgundy and Bordeaux. We will take a walk through history while drinking wines from these regions as we unfold the story of French resistance as the German wine Weinführers attempted to pillage the cellars of hundreds of wineries.

We'll discuss the history of World War II through the lens of vignerons, the battles that raged inside the country and the power of the French resistance in the world of wine. You will have a new understanding of a unique struggle that occurred in WWII as well as an introduction to three of the most prominent appellations of France. Six different wines, including a reserve Champagne, will be sampled in class today. An assortment of noshes will also be provided during class.

This wine class will take place outdoors on our patio and are therefore subject to weather cancellation. In the event of a cancellation, all participants will be contacted by phone and email no later than 2pm on the day of the class.

You must be 21 or over to attend. Please present valid ID at the time of check-in.
