Champagne: How the World’s Most Glamorous Wine Triumphed over War and Hard Times
Don Kladstrup (au); Petie Kladstrup (au)
The Champagne region in northern France has been the site of more bloody battles, fiery incursions, and large-scale wars than any other place on earth. From the time of Attila the Hun to the Germans in WW2, countless invaders have tried to conquer this strife-torn land. Yet it managed to become the birthplace of the world’s most beloved wine. This book shows how this sparkling wine became a symbol of glamour, good times, and celebration. It’s a story filled with larger-than-life characters: Dom Perignon, who worked his entire life to keep bubbles out of champagne; Louis XIV, who rarely drank anything else; and Napoleon, who, in trying to conquer the world, introduced it to champagne. “A compelling, dramatic, eye-opening, and fascinating book.” Illus.
