French Revolution Wine Tasting
November 5 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
|Are you a fan of a Bordeaux, Chablis, Burgundy, Champagne, or Côtes du Rhône?
French wine originated in the 6th century BC with the colonization of Southern Gaul by Greek settlers. The Roman Empire licensed regions in the south of France to produce wines. St. Martin of Tours planted vineyards while spreading Christianity in the fourth century. During the Middle Ages, monks maintained vineyards and conserved wine making knowledge and skills. Monasteries had the resources, security and motivation to produce a steady supply of wine both for celebrating mass and generating income. Over time, the nobility developed extensive vineyards. The French Revolution led to a lull in the wine industry as vineyards owned by the Church and the nobility were confiscated. So we’re taking back the lull! Join us on Saturday, November 5th, anytime from 4-7pm, to taste through 5 of our current favorite French wines, and to celebrate all of the viticulture France has to offer!
