New World vs. Old World Wine Class with Kane Milbauer

*UPDATE* WE NOW ARE OFFERING TWO, 1 HOUR SEATINGS - 7pm & 8pm
Wine is as much about a sense of time and place as it is about the varietal. Essentially, the "Old World" refers to all of Europe and its outskirts. Generally, these wines focus on the terroir (environment/climate) and offer a bit more finesse and structure, whereas the "New World" (The Americas, Australia, New Zealand, et al) tends to produce riper, more fruit-forward wines. We will also clarify some common misunderstandings with nomenclature; the old world often calls its varietals by region (i.e. Sancerre is a region in France, not a grape! The varietal is Sauvignon Blanc), whereas new world wines are called by their varietal (New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon). Join us to taste and learn the difference in styles!
