4 Week Wine Course: France vs New World
This fascinating course will focus on the classic wine regions of France and compare them against the best of the New World.
Join us each evening 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 Syrah from the south of France and Shiraz from the Barossa Valley? By the end of the course you will be able to! We will compare Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah/Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and more from the best locations and producers from France and the New World.
It is only when you taste these wines together that the differences really stand out. 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 with wines from the Loire, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rhone, Alsace and Champagne.
