II. During World War II, in France, Many local officials fled when the Nazis marched to Dijon. 'Felix Kir', a Priest in the Catholic church, remained in the city and helped more than 4,000 prisoners of war escape from a camp near the city. According to the legend, when the Nazis seized the iconic red wines of Burgundy, Felix Kir will combine the Aligote white wine with the city, which is integrated with the city, and will respond to this attack of the Nazis in the form of 'Here is our new red wine'. He combined the existing dry white wine Aligoté with the Currant liqueur to mimic the color of the classic reds of Burgundy. Kir’s war prowess included him in France's Legion D'onneur and served as the mayor of Dijon from 1945 until his death in 1968.
