New! Old World vs New World Wines
Friday, January 13 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
The deepest-held secret in wine is called terroir. Thousands of sommeliers worship terroir as the spark behind all great wines. Others say it’s a myth cooked up by a gaggle of medieval monks and juiced up by a coterie of modern marketing mavens. The one thing that is obvious to all in the know: there is a HUGE difference between the wines of Europe and the wines of America and other New World wine regions.
In this class, we pit the classics of Europe against our best. We are talking Napa Valley VS Bordeaux, New Zealand VS Burgundy, and more. Who will win this eternal match-up? The class will decide, and –who knows– maybe the wine instructor will pull a special bottle of wine from the cellar to finish the class!
