Maison de Champagne Taittinger
A Hospital in a Champagne Cellar!
The Champagne region was the site of many WWI battles, and the Taittinger Champagne cellars - miles of tunnels - were turned into a hospital for French soldiers. They left a lot of reminders, carved into the soft chalk walls of the 13th-century wine caves. ("Guerre" is French for "war.")
