Bubbly Badasses: Women in the History of Champagne - Webinar - Sunday

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. 


In order to survive, and thrive, the Champenois have learnt to be patient, unified and resilient


Women have played a key role throughout the history of the region and the wine. They were enthusiastic consumers in the 18th century and innovative producers during the 19th century. They also kept the champagne ship afloat during two World Wars in the 20th century. And like a champagne bubble, they are moving onwards and upwards during the 21st century.


Pop open a bottle of champagne made by a woman, sit back, relax, and listen to the stories about these inspirational women. Here are a few of the women you will learn about:

 

  • Mesdames de Parabère and de Pompadour, Catherine the Great, and many cheeky courtisanes during the 18th century who celebrated life and love with effervescence!
     
  • Mesdames Cliquot, Pommery, Perrier, and other widows during the 19th century who initiated technical innovations while navigating the Napoleonic and Franco-Prussian Wars.
     
  • Mesdames Krug, Olry-Roederer, Bollinger and de Nonancourt who managed their Houses while bombs literally fell on their heads or Nazis pillaged their cellars during WWI and WWII.
     
  • The fabulous female growers and owners behind La Transmission and Fa’bulleuses who have joined forces to transmit knowledge and support each other.
