A fun evening of history and wine – back by popular demand!
Learn how the vine growers, wine villages and wine regions survived the ravages of war across the world whilst sampling 13 white and red wines – and discover their link with the world wars with Rose Murray Brown MW as your guide.
During the first part of the evening you will discover wines from families in the French regions of Champagne, Alsace, Burgundy and Loire and learn about their involvement in WW1 and WW2. In the second part of the evening you will sample wines from war torn corners of the world – including Syria, Lebanon, Armenia and Kosovo.
Visuals will illustrate the producers and regions.
A selection of fine cheeses will also be served alongside the wines.
