History of Wine (1453AD-Present) @ Le Dû's WinesSee all

In May of 1453, the great city of Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire. Just two months later, the French reconquered Bordeaux, ending 300 years of English control. Though these two unrelated events were a long time coming, their combined effect would change the world of wine overnight. The prestigious sweet wines of the Greek world were no longer in reach for the Venetians that dominated Europe's trade routes. They would soon find themselves replaced by English and Dutch merchants, who would navigate shifting alliances, advancing technology, and the very ends of the earth in pursuit of a decent glass. At Le Dû's Wines, we've always placed emphasis on the education of not just the wine drinker's palate, but the understanding of the cultural world that wine inhabits. In our recent History of Wine seminars, we took a deep dive into the story of wine across the millenia. In this collection, you'll find the 6 wines that accompanied 1453AD-Present, and within them a short description on how they fit into the epic story.
