The Wine History of Bordeaux with Tanya Morning Star

Wine History of Bordeaux 

Bordeaux has been one of the most important ports in all of Europe since Roman times, and it is no surprise that the wines of the area have inspired strategic political alliances, wars, wealth, and are among the old world’s most internationally influenced and sought after. Bordeaux is iconically French, but would not resemble itself without the impact of the English and the Dutch. Join wine historian Tanya Morning Star Darling to uncover the essence of the greatest wine of trade, explore the classifications and Chateaux that shaped the Bordeaux region as we know it today.

Nestled between the Apennine and the Sub Apennine, Umbria is Known as the « Green Heart of Italy » and is aptly, overflowing with extraordinary food and wine traditions! While often overshadowed by its famous, and wealthy neighbor to the West (Tuscany), Umbria has a rich culture in its own right. A place where ancient meets maverick, and tradition meets modernity, Umbria welcomes both international, but is also the home of many indigenous grapes as well, and is home to many little known wine treasures: full bodied reds, age-worthy whites, red passito wines, the only DOC regulated botrytis wine in Italy, and even a host of artisanal traditional method sparkling wines!

This webinar will dive deep into the terroirs, appellations, and wines of Umbria, and also explore the ancient and contemporary history, which shapes the wines and culture, making it such an exciting place to explore.

Wine has, since it’s discovery in Neolithic times, been one of the most powerful tools at human disposal for alleviating physical and emotional suffering. It is no surprise that wine has also historically been one of Western Civilizations most important trade commodities, a driving force of culture, politics, war, art, and spirituality. It is therefore only natural that gender politics would play a huge role in the history of such a powerful commodity.

This master class will explore the roles and contributions of women in the wine trade from antiquity to present, the systematic political and social obstacles faced by women, and how women have overcome to make significant and meaningful contributions. Through examining history and the structural framework of our society we can be guided into a more vibrant and inclusive present and future for women in wine!

Tanya Morning Star is a full time wine educator with nearly 3 decades of industry experience. Her school Cellar Muse is the approved program provider for Wine Scholar Certifications (French, Italian, and Spanish) in the Seattle area. She also teaches WSET coursework, and is Faculty at the Northwest Wine Academy at South Seattle College.

Tanya has a background in art history and history of the theater through her undergraduate work at the Sorbonne and New York University. Tanya has always sought to find deeper context and meaning through her work, and to connect her work in wine to her passion for culture, food, and storytelling. Studying history has always been a natural extension of those pursuits and her personal passion.

Since 2012, Tanya has been a professor of Wine History at South Seattle College, where she developed two, three-credit college courses collectively covering the history of wine from Antiquity to the Modern Age. Through developing and teaching these courses over the years, Tanya became acutely aware of the greater politics of gender inequity in Western Civilization as it plays out in the story of wine. She also became keen on understanding the systemic nature of exclusion towards women in the world of wine, and deeply drawn towards the amazing stories of Women’s successes, triumphs, and contributions throughout wine history. This lecture represents some of the highlights of this journey.
