The Triangle Chapter of the American Wine Society Presents
Exploring the Major Wine Regions of France
August 18, 2019
Presenter: Theresa Thiel
Why are the French so Good at Winemaking, Cuisine &
Why Does France Still Make the World's Best Wines?
What is at the Heart of the French Viticulture System?
French wine can trace its history to the 6th century BC, with many of
France's regions dating their wine-making history to - wait for it - Roman
times. Those Romans sure got around and wherever they went, wine was sure to
follow! Did you ever wonder why the most expensive wines in the world come from
France? If a friend gave you a bottle of 1787 Chateau Margaux or
Lafite-Rothchild, would you be happy or think your friend was cheap to give you
a bottle of old wine? France is the birthplace of many grape varieties (Cabernet
Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, etc.) as well as
wine-making practices and styles of wine that have spread throughout the
wine-producing world. Theresa's presentation will be in the same frame as shared
by Kevin Zraly, American wine educator and the Founder of Windows on the World
Wine School. Join us on this exciting and tasteful journey of wine discovery as
we seek to demystify the broad generalizations about French wine!
