Old World vs New World wines

What does it mean when a wine is considered Old World or New World? Typically, Old World wines have a strong sense of place, where the terroir plays an important role in influencing the wine. New World wines, broadly classified as wines produced outside of Europe, are generally bolder, where the wine producers work hard to preserve the varietal characteristics of the grapes they are using. Of course, as all things are, these theories do not apply to all the wines that are being produced today. The lines between Old World and New World blur as technology advances and styles change.

Each Thursday this January, we will be exploring the difference between Old World and New World wines. Each week we will focus on a particular varietal represented in both Old World and New World wines to highlight and compare wine styles and procedures over places of origin, giving you the opportunity to taste, learn, and enjoy these vastly different wines.

Featured wines are always 10% off unless otherwise discounted.
