Event Description

Old World wines have historically had the reputation of higher quality to that of the New World and many people have preconceived views about this. However, many New World regions produce wines of outstanding quality, so is this really the case? 

Are you Team Old World or Team New World? 

We'll try six different wines, all tasted 'blind', in pairs - in each case, both wines will be made from the same grape variety, but one will be from the Old World and one will be from the New World. Can you tell the difference? Which do you prefer? 

Join us to see whether the Old World or the New World will be victorious on the night!
