Terroir Showdown: New World vs Old World

The showdown you've been waiting for is here! "Old World" and "New World” - two terms that spark debate among wine lovers around the world, yet so often misunderstood and thrown about broadly without fully understanding the difference between the two styles. During this educational tasting and comparative tasting like no other, you will learn what distinguishes these two areas, how their wine styles and traditions differ, and what makes each distinct from the other. 


Terroir Showdown: Que Syrah Sirah

What's in a name? In this fun and educational class we’ll explore the mind boggling difference between Syrah, Shiraz and Petite Sirah through an interactive tasting. You will learn what distinguishes the various Syrah/Shiraz growing regions around the world, how the wine styles and traditions differ, and what makes each distinct from the other. You’ll also learn that there is nothing small about Petite Sirah and though the grapes are demonstrably different, they weave a similar pattern of style and location to Syrah, complementing each other on the journey from vine to wine. Experience this delicious journey with a few of Chef’s complementary tastes!
