Old World vs New World Wines (POOLE)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TASTING WILL NOW TAKE PLACE AT THE HOTEL DU VIN, POOLE
New World vs Old World - This fascinating course will focus on the classic wine regions of the Old World, such as Piemonte and Puglia in ITALY, Rioja in SPAIN, Burgundy and Bordeaux in FRANCE, etc and compare them against the best of the New World.
Join us in Winchester at the welcoming Custom House in Poole, 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 Zinfandel from California and Primitivo from Puglia? – by the end of the night you will be able to! We will compare grape varieties such as Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and learn more about the best locations and producers from the Old Wold 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 wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, California, and compare them to wines from France, Italy, Germany and Spain.
All in all, a fantastic opportunity to taste 6 exciting wines from 6 different countries and discover those you like best. Challenge the way you think about wine - for ever, AS ALL WINES WILL BE TASTED BLIND!
