World of Wine - America, Chile, Argentina
Let's take a closer look at some of these New World wines taking the world by storm!
Part 1: USA
Let's talk about California. On the one hand, we get the bulk, sweet, pink wines that can be found by the bucket load in the supermarket and then there's the super-premium world of boutique Napa Valley wineries, as shown in the film 'Sideways'. So, what's the real Californian wine? Tonight we will dodge the stereotypes and discover rich, full bodied Zinfandels (the red, not the pink!), and glorious award-winning Viogniers. Californian wines are elusive and often expensive, but compete with some of the best in the world. Come along and taste for yourself!
Part 2: Chile and Argentina
Chile is often described as one of the most perfect places to grow grapes on the planet. We'll talk about climatic and geographical influences that make this country unique, and try some of the most exciting and best value wines on the market.
Argentina, on the other side of the Andes mountains has a personality all of it's own and produces some spectacular and unique wines. As well as the world famous Malbecs, Argentina also produces the crisp, perfumed Torrontes - a unique and up and coming grape variety which we'll explore also.
Come and see what these countries have to offer and discover some new and delicious delights!
The evening is a fully tutored 2 hour tasting of six wines with cheese and nibbles.
