Upcoming Wine TastingsWine CoursesA Fun Sommelier Test

If you were the ruler of the known universe, what would you drink? The Wine School of Philadelphia will answer that question. A two-hour tour de force of wine history and tasting, “Napoleon’s Bottle” is a unique class held only once a year at the school.

 “Clearly, the pleasures wines afford are transitory – but so are those of the ballet, or of a musical performance. Wine is inspiring and adds greatly to the joy of living.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte ruled over almost every wine-growing country in Europe, including France, Italy, Spain, and Germany.  Have no doubt, and he was also a great lover of the fermented grape. Along with the class, the audience will be sampling the wine styles that Napoleon loved and admired, including a taste of the very last wine he ever drank.

“Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of wine.”  – Napoleon Bonaparte

The class is held in the Bacchus Classroom at the Wine School of Philadelphia. The School is located at109 S 22nd Street in Philadelphia’s posh Rittenhouse neighborhood.

This and many classes are offers at the school. Check out our current schedule of wine classes.

“I drink champagne when I win, to celebrate . . . and I drink champagne when I lose, to console myself.” – Napoleon Bonaparte
