Pop a bottle! It’s time for Wine and War!


A very special class stepping through the impact of WWII on the wines of France plus incredible stories and insights from the book Wine and War by Don and Petie Kaldstrup. 

Included are detailed handouts to keep you on track and help you retain the information. The follow-up page will archive the webinar for your future enjoyment.


If you have not yet read the book Wine and War, this webinar will be an amazing eye-opener! (Here is an Amazon link to the book.) If you have read the book, you know how amazing some of these stories are.

In this new Wine Workshop, we will step through the key families in the book and talk about some of their adventures during the war. Hugel, Huet, Drouhin, Chateau Palmer, Laurent-Perrier, and more producers will be discussed along with a quick but comprehensive overview of Champagne, Alsace, Burgundy, the Rhône, Bordeaux, and the Loire. This is an info-packed class!

No wines are required to enjoy the workshop but feel free to pop a bottle to enjoy during the show. After the workshop, you can use your new knowledge to stock the cellar for great drinking ahead!

The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course then makes it much more fun.

We hope you can join us for the Wine Workshop: Wine and War.
