Course Description

This 3-week course looks at the origins of the 'New World' of wine and will bring you bang up to date with the wines and wine culture of Australia, New Zealand, The Americas and South Africa.

While acknowledging the concept of 'terroir', the new world wine nations broke the winemaking mould and set about making wines that were rich, fruity and packed with varietal personality.

Today Australian Chardonnay, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec from Mendoza roll off the tongue as easily as Red Bordeaux. On this course we'll explore how innovation and experiementation has been key to the success of new world wine countries in crafting their own unique identity.

The course will also look at organic wine, natural wine, biodynamic wine and the threat posed by the changing climate which are all now part of the modern day new-world wine conversation.
