What you'll learn in this wine class:

During World War II the Germans 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 and some special bottles that are not on our wine list, will be sampled in class today. 

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

Reviewed by Lynn M. on 2/16/2018
Great class! I was impressed by the set up and cheese plate variety; everything just looked nice and well presented upon entrance. The useful wine tasting information "how to" at the beginning of the class served us well throughout the night. I enjoyed learning about an aspect of WW2 (the vineyard takeovers) that I didn't even know existed. Tje wines chosen for tasting were excellent! I would highly recommend this class to any history and/or wine buffs!
