One Evening - New World vs Old World
This fascinating evening will focus on the classic wine regions of the Old World, such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Piedmont, Rioja etc and compare them against the best of the New World. Join us as we taste several pairs of wines made from the same grape variety, but from different countries. Do you think you can tell the difference between Syrah from Rhone Valley and Shiraz from the Barossa Valley? – by the end of the course you will be able to! We will compare Cabernet, Syrah/Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and more from the best locations and producers from France, Italy & Spain, and the New World. It is only when you taste these wines together that the differences really stand out, and the comparisons can bring some amazing insights into wine styles. We will taste a selection of wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, California, and compare them to wines from Loire, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rhone, Italy and Spain.
A fantastic opportunity to taste the Old World & New World together!
