From the Louvre Museum to a fifteenth-century charitable hospital and champagne cellars created out of former Roman salt mines, this educational journey offers you a chance to learn about the modern history of the wines of France and the roles played by vignerons, vintners and others, during one of France’s darkest eras: the Nazi Occupation. Paris is where this tour begins; Burgundy and Champagne are the other stops in the journey.
Although most activities focus on wine or war, there are some activities that focus on history, art, and architecture. Your journey will be supplemented by a list of suggested reading, fiction or nonfiction that explores the both French wine-making and the history of France under the Occupation, the Resistance.
