Calling all Label Shoppers (that is not a bad thing at all): this class is for you! This is a fun class! Every single bottle in the world WILL fall into one of two categories: Old World, or New World. Here you will compare a grape varietal grown in the “Old World” (Greater Europe) style with the same varietal grown in the “New World” style (The Americas, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia), and you will learn about two fundamental winemaking philosophies that a great winemaker needs to use for the creation of complex wines: the art of blending and the art of the single vineyard as well as how to differentiate the two. All 6 wines will be served blind to encourage thoughtful examination of the wine and stimulate discussion.
