Wine Tasting
Old World vs. New World Wines

Friday, May 17 at 6:00 p.m.
$22++ per person

Old World winemaking philosophies emanated from a sense of place and the role attributed to terroir as well as mother-nature in determining wine quality. In contrast, the New World philosophy rests on the preservation of varietal fruit character, believing that the appropriate harnessing of scientific and technological best practices in the vineyard and in the winery could iron out any terroir imperfections. Tell us your philosophies on these two seemingly opposing ideals (and wine categories).
