Derby 4 Week New World vs Old World Course
New World v Old World - This fascinating course will focus on the classic wine regions of the Old World, such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Piedmont, Rioja etc 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 Rhone Valley and Shiraz from the Barossa Valley? – by the end of the course you will be able to! We will compare Cabernet, Syrah/Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and more, from the best regions and producers.
It is only when you taste these wines together that the differences really stand out, and 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 to wines from Loire, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rhone, Italy and Spain.
All in all a fantastic opportunity to taste over 25 exciting wines and discover those you like best. Challenge the way you think about wine - for ever!
