Champagne in World War I: Protecting French Terroir - Saturday

Champagne in World War I: Protecting French Terroir - Saturday

Le champagne is a celebratory wine that marks special occasions, brings joy, represents elegance, and the finer things in life. When one thinks of le champagne, we think of happy times. Ironically, la Champagne is a region that is known for its harsh weather and bloody history. From the Romans who invaded Gaul at the beginning of the first century, to the Nazis who pillaged the cellars in the twentieth century, many a soldier has marched through the Champagne hillsides during the last 2000 years.

During World War One the Champagne region lost 50% of its population, and 40% of its vineyards were destroyed. This conversation will look at how the geography changed as the region was transformed into a battlefield during the wartime years. We’ll also discuss how the Champagne Houses became refuges during the conflict, and the role women played in order to maintain the production of champagne.

Join Cynthia Coutu, an expert on Champagne, in order to remember the lives lost, and also learn about the inspirational resilience of the Champenois.
