WWI in Champagne - Webinar- Monday

WWI in Champagne - Webinar- Monday

Le champagne is a celebratory wine that marks special occasions, brings joy, represents elegance and the finer things in life. When you think of le champagne, you 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 1st century, to the Nazis who pillaged the cellars in the 20th century, many a soldier has marched through the Champagne hillsides during the last 2000 years. 


Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day) is observed every year on 11 November to remember all those who fought and died in the line of duty to keep us free. If we do not remember, their sacrifice is meaningless. 


During WWI the Champagne region lost 50% of its population, and 40% of its vineyards were destroyed. During this webinar, you will learn:

  • how the region was transformed into a battlefield
  • how the Champagne Houses became refuges
  • the role women played to maintain the production of champagne

We will remember the lives lost and you will be inspired by the resilience of the Champenois.
