The Dramatic Story of French Wine
With Tanya Morning Star
Jun 15 2021

Summary: 

Wine sits at the heart of French cultural identity.  Against the backdrop of religion, politics, trade, wars, pests, and plagues, wine can always be found playing a roll in the history of France throughout the ages.

Using wine as the protagonist, this WSG Live will journey through the arc of French history, from Roman times to the 20th century. Fashion, trends and spiritual and social norms govern people’s expectations of wine to shape the evolution of wine styles and customs. 

Join wine historian Tanya Morning Star Darling to discover the dramatic story of French wine and how understanding history can help us to appreciate more deeply our most beloved wines of the present day.
