Old World vs New World Wine Class

  • Tastemakers 2800 10th Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20017 United States (map)

Old World vs. New World has been a debate that has lasted almost as long as the New World has been producing wine. Old World refers to Europe whereas New World refers to any part of the world that was at one point under colonial rule such as North and South America, South Africa, Australia, among others. It's subjective to argue that one style is better than the other, but everyone agrees that they're different. In this class, we will cover:

- Old World wine philosophy

- New World wine philosophy

- Old World wine profiles

- New World wine profiles

- The subtle and not so subtle differences

Come early and get some delicious food from Tastemakers' food hall (and make sure to bring your ID, since participants must be 21 or older)!
