In the late 1800s, French wines were almost lost forever.

Starting around 1860, a tiny yellow louse called phylloxera (pronounced fi-lok-SUH-ruh) decimated Europe’s vineyards, brought to the continent unknowingly by Victorian-era botanists through American native vines. The pests had free rein on a continent where they never should have set wing. When the damage was done, vineyards throughout the world would be changed forever.

Koken is meer dan een recept.
