Old World vs. New World

You’ll no doubt have heard people use the phrases “Old World” and “New World” to describe wine styles, but what do these terms really mean? Join William Leonard-Lee for an intriguing look at what differentiates “Old” from “New World” wines, as he attempts to separate them into these two camps. Taste selections from some of the world’s top winemaking regions to form a clearer understanding of how terroir and technique can affect the profile of a wine. We will also take an in-depth look at how different treatments to the same grape variety can yield wines of wildly differing attributes. California Merlot and Saint-Émilion? Australian Shiraz vs. Northern Rhône? Taste and decide which side of the winemaking divide these wines lay!
